The Road to Mecca

January 20, 2018
8:00 pm
Pear Theatre

Miss Helen, a reclusive widow, harbors an odd but prolific artistic impulse which makes her the subject of ridicule among the neighbors in Athol Fugard's classic “The Road to Mecca.” Her life becomes caught between her friend, the stern reverend who urges her to move to a senior home, and a young schoolteacher who encourages her to follow her heart. In 1990, Time magazine included the play in its “Theatre: Best of the Decade” list, saying “South Africa's conscience, Athol Fugard, proved his compassion is universal in this Ibsenesque conflict between a fiercely independent artist and a society justly yearning for order.” Betsy Kruse Craig directs a cast which includes Diane Tasca as Miss Helen, Briana Mitchell as Elsa, and John Baldwin as the Reverend Marius.
