The Trip to Bountiful at the Alumnae Theatre

Alumnae-Theatre-bountiful-PSnews-picSome of the greatest actresses have shone in the role of Carrie Watts, the elderly, beleaguered heroine of Horton Foote’s tearful comedy The Trip to Bountiful. That includes Lillian Gish in the original 1953 TV and Broadway productions, Geraldine Page (who won a long-overdue Best Actress Oscar for the role) and, more recently, Cicely Tyson in both a Broadway revival (Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award), and a Lifetime TV production with Blair Underwood and Vanessa Williams. The play has also helped launch other renowned players, including Eileen Heckart, Rebecca De Mornay, the late John Heard, Eva Marie Saint and Jo Van Fleet

 

So, it’s only appropriate that the Alumnae Theatre production of The Trip to Bountiful will include an Artists Appreciation Night on Wednesday, January 22, to promote theatre in Toronto. Tickets will be 2 for one that evening. Theatre people will have an opportunity to meet and chat with their colleagues at a reception afterwards. Plus, they’re encouraged to donate two tickets to one of their own productions that will be passed on to other audience members in a free draw. “With theatre in this city and province suffering from cutbacks and other issues,” says organizer Simone Goldberg, “it’s important for us all to get to know each other better.”

 
If you want to check out why this play has been such a winner for actors, it runs January 17 – February 1, on the Alumnae Theatre Mainstage. https://www.alumnaetheatre.com/the-trip-to-bountiful.html
