Sands Theater Presents THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL 11/6-22
The Trip to Bountiful is set in 1947 Houston. Forced by circumstances to live her loathsome son and daughter-in-law, Carrie Watts wants nothing more out of life than to return to her home town of Bountiful. Escaping from her family's clutches, Carrie boards a bus to Bountiful, where she makes the acquaintance of young friend.
The two women immediately hit it off, and their trip is a most pleasant one. Eventually, the sheriff who was ordered to find Carrie and bring her back to her family, catches up with the old woman just 12 miles from Bountiful. Feeling sorry for her, the sheriff permits her to complete her sentimental journey, even though he knows full well that Bountiful is now a ghost town of empty ruins and dilapidated shacks. It doesn't matter, though: Carrie sees Bountiful just as it was when she left it, and for the first time in years she is truly happy and at peace with herself.
