The Trip to Bountiful
by Horton Foote
AART presents a staged reading of The Trip to Bountiful starring the legendary IRMA P. HALL on May 21, 2017 at 2PM located at the Hall of State in the Margaret and Al Hill Auditorium, 3939 Grand Ave, Dallas, TX 75210.

Horton Foote’s moving play tells the story of Carrie Watts an elderly woman who longs to escape the cramped Houston apartment where she lives with her protective son, Ludie, and her authoritarian daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae. Carrie wants to return to her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one final time before she dies. While Ludie is at work and Jessie Mae is at the drugstore, Carrie escapes to the bus station and befriends a young woman named Thelma. The new friends travel toward Bountiful together, but when Carrie arrives, she begins to learn that her beloved town isn’t the same as she remebered it.
