If a production is successful, it will draw you into the world it has created and for a while, allow you to lose yourself in the story unfolding on stage. With just a few well-placed set pieces, convincing costumes and powerful performances, it can be done. THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, now playing at the Alumnae Theatre, pulls it off wonderfully. Though the runtime was over two hours, it only took a few minutes for me to find myself drawn in and on my way to Bountiful.
