"Lois Smith gives what is surely the most achingly beautiful performance"
– CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

March 1 - April 13, 2008 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours

Horton Foote’s tender, heartfelt study focuses on Carrie Watts, who dreams of returning to her childhood home in the small town of Bountiful, Texas, which she left three decades ago. She sets out to fulfill her dream, with results that are both heartbreaking and brilliantly life-affirming. Actor/director Harris Yulin recreates his off-Broadway triumph, featuring a luminous performance by Obie Award-winner Lois Smith.
