"The Trip to Bountiful"
Thursday, May 16, 2013
Actress Cicely Tyson, director Michael Wilson, and Hallie Foote (Horton’s daughter) discuss Horton Foote’s “The Trip to Bountiful.” Cicely Tyson plays a woman trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her soft-spoken son and out-spoken daughter-in-law, dreaming of a return to the small Gulf Coast town of Bountiful, where she grew up and raised her family. Worried that she’s an imposition and longing to escape 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 Trip to Bountiful” is playing at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
