Review from Rich Schmidt

Horton Foote when well rendered is darn near irresistible. The play was very nicely done with nice sets, stage direction and sound effects. Subtle music and costumes were apropos'. The actors we well cast and did a good job especially Gwen Van Dam...continued

The Trip to Bountiful

Written by Horton Foote

Horton Foote’s tender, heartfelt story focuses on Carrie Watts, who dreams of returning to her childhood home in the small town of Bountiful, Texas, which she left three decades ago. She plots a daring journey to the place whose peaceful memory has comforted her in the stressful life she leads with her frail son and shrewish daughter-in-law. The fulfillment of her dream is is both heartbreaking and brilliantly life-affirming, a bittersweet experience that transforms longing into satisfaction.
