Description

THE ROAD TO MECCA, by Athol Fugard, director TBAWinner of the 1988 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Play

This unusual drama by a premiere contemporary dramatist focuses on Miss Helen, an old Boer woman who lives alone in the South African boondocks where she creates odd concrete sculptures which she calls her Mecca. A young woman who was once helped by Miss Helen has traveled hundreds of miles to help her in a time of crisis. Miss Helen is in danger of being sent to an old folks' home by a narrow-minded minister who considers her sculptures a public nuisance. A penetrating study of the role of the artist in any society, this important play was produced in London and New York to great critical acclaim.

"The author's most personal play to date, an essential Rosetta stone for the entire canon." - The New York Times. "Glows with a rare luminosity and intensity. Athol Fugard's play...is his most eloquent and transforming." - The Christian Science Monitor "One of Fugard's simplest, most beautiful plays." - The New York Daily News
