‘The Trip to Bountiful’ nominated for several Tony Awards


The Tony Awards nominations have been announced and The Trip to Bountiful has scored nominations for:

Best Revival of a Play

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play – Cicely Tyson

Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play – Condola Rashad (daughter of Phylicia Rashād).

The highly acclaimed stage play by Horton Foote centers on Carrie Watts, portrayed by Emmy Award-winning actress Cicely Tyson. Watts is held somewhat of a prisoner in a cramped Houston apartment with her son, Ludie (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and her self-centered daughter-in-law (Vanessa Williams).

Watts manages to slip away from her son and daughter–in-law and takes a bus trip to Bountiful, a small town in Texas that she calls home. During her journey, Watts finds a companion in Thelma (Condola Rashad).

It is on the journey that Watts rediscovers herself and begins to awaken from the shell her living situation has forced her into.


Congratulations to the entire Bountiful cast!
