The Road to Mecca

The Road to Mecca tells the story of an eccentric elderly artist facing mounting pressure to abandon her independent life for a church retirement home. Out of desperation, she calls upon her only confidant, a fiery young teacher from Cape Town. When the village minister arrives to coax out her decision, the three enter a blazing showdown that pits conformity against free expression… faith in community against faith in oneself. Set against the charged backdrop of South African apartheid, The Road to Mecca is a beautifully crafted tribute to the artist’s indomitable spirit. The production starred Rosemary Harris, Jim Dale and Carla Gugino.
