The beloved classic from America's heartland playwright.
Carrie Watts is living the twilight of her life trapped in an apartment in Houston, Texas with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. Her fondest wish —just once before she dies—is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as "home."
The trouble is her son is too concerned for her health to allow her to travel alone, and her petty daughter-in-law insists there is no money to squander on bus tickets. This prompts "escape" attempts each month which coincide with the arrival of Carrie's pension check. Finally, Carrie at last makes a successful escape and attempts a last trip home.
Little does she know that her family has alerted the local police . . .
