The Trip to Bountiful Summary

Trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her soft-spoken son and self-absorbed daughter-in-law, widow Carrie Watts dreams of returning to her home in the small Gulf Coast town of Bountiful, where she grew up and raised her own family. Fearing that she’s an imposition and chafing under her daughter-in-law’s watchful eye, she steals away with her latest pension check and heads home in the journey of a lifetime. The result is an unforgettable meditation on the idea of home and its power to sustain us.

“Book the next bus to Bountiful.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Unforgettably excellent. I’ve never been more deeply moved by a theatrical production of any kind. The Trip to Bountiful is without a flaw.” – Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

The Trip to Bountiful is a simple, sweet story about family and home.” Jesse Oxfeld, The New York Observer

“Cicely Tyson runs away with it. This is a performance that’s sure to be talked about for the next 60 years.” -Roma Torre, NY1
