Readers’ Theatre Online Auditions – The Trip to Bountiful

WLT Reader’s Theatre Online Presents:

The Trip to Bountiful
By Horton Foote
Directed by LaTasha Do’zia

A virtual reading to air on September 11th, 12th and 13th, 2020 (Friday-Sunday)

Set in 1953, The Trip to Bountiful is the story of Mrs. Carrie Watts’ journey back to the home of her youth: Bountiful, Texas. In ways, it’s just the simple telling of an elderly woman’s call back to her old friends and to her roots. And in deeper ways, it’s the mythic odyssey we all must make in the search of the self.
