About

"The Road to Mecca" by Athol Fugard and directed by Jerome Davis.

Based on the true story of a South African woman, Miss Helen, who began to create sculptures late in her life, determined that her voice would finally be heard.  Athol Fugard’s masterpiece was hailed on its original production at Burning Coal as one of the Triangle’s best productions of the decade.  Artistic Director Jerome Davis again returns to the Karoo Desert and to the play he calls “one of my five all-time favorites.”
