About The Event

BOUNTIFUL: RURAL VOICES is a new staged play reading series at the Stissing Center for Arts and Culture. Focused on amplifying stories of life in rural America, this inaugural season focuses on three play by known, celebrated, published playwrights that capture the stories of everyday people living in rural America - the ups and downs, laughter and tears, joy and sorrow.

A TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL by Horton Foote. THE STORY: Carrie Watts  may be old, but she suffers no shortage of spirit. When her carping daughter-in-law  and overprotective son forbid her to travel alone from Houston to her childhood home in Bountiful, she strikes out anyway. Learning that trains no longer stop there, she takes a bus instead and en route meets a young woman  with whom she shares both secrets and memories. Little does she know that her family has alerted the police.
