Athol Fugard’s “The Road To Mecca”

Athol Fugard’s The Road to Mecca From 27 March 2018

Eric Abraham presents this Fugard Theatre production of Athol Fugard’s The Road to Mecca, in honour of the iconic playwright’s 85th year. The play will open at the Fugard Theatre on 27 March 2018, on World Theatre Day, and run for a limited season. Directed by Greg Karvellas (The Fugard’s Shakespeare in Love, Clybourne Park, The Father, Bad Jews), the production stars Sandra Prinsloo, Marius Weyers and Emily Child.

Inspired by Helen Martins, who lived in Nieu-Bethesda and created the now famous Owl House – which is designated a provincial heritage site – The Road to Mecca is the story of a woman’s desire for personal and artistic freedom within the narrow confines of a conservative and highly religious community in the Karoo in early seventies apartheid South Africa.
