Bountiful is beautiful! The acting and staging are excellent. Gwen Van Dam and Gina Yates are standouts.(All the actors are terrific.) Don't let the fact that this play is set several decades ago put you off. Tells the story of yearning to go back, even if it is only for a moment, to a place and time in life when life felt so very sweet. Nearly everyone can relate to being torn between two people that you love and trying to do right for each of them. There are funny as well as poignant moments in this play.
Really well done!

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
Directed by Larry Eisenberg
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.
