The touching American classic, THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman who dreams of returning to her small hometown of Bountiful, TX one last time, against the wishes of her overprotective son and domineering daughter-in-law. Her journey becomes a heartbreaking but ultimately life-affirming and inspiring tale that examines the fragility of memory and celebrates the enduring power of hope and faith.

Featured Reviews For The Trip to Bountiful


Theater Review: 'The Trip to Bountiful' - amNY
Unlike some other famous dramas that have been uncomfortably adapted for African-American casts, Michael Wilson's tender revival of "The Trip to Bountiful" works extraordinarily well with the Watts family played by African-American actors...Cicely Tyson delivers a fully animated, very spirited performance that makes the audience want to root for her to finally arrive home. The statuesque Vanessa Williams is also an ideal choice for the self-centered Jessie May. Cuba Gooding Jr., who is making his professional stage debut, stresses Ludie's boyish persona, but looks ill-at-ease compared with his colleagues. 3 stars

'The Trip to Bountiful' review: Cicely Tyson is radiant - Newsday
Tyson, who has said she admired this play since she saw Geraldine Page in the 1985 movie, says she told her agent, "get me my 'Trip to Bountiful' and I'll retire." Better, perhaps she'll make Broadway home.

The Constitution is the only document you get more knowledge of it, the drunker you get.  Why?  It was written during a four month drunken binge. The bills from those days show thousands of dollars in wine, port, beer.  They were all drinking.
