(Past production) The Road to Mecca

by Athol Fugard

Inspired by a true story, this play follows Miss Helen, a South African widow who harbors an unconventional artistic impulse. She is caught between an old friend who urges her to conform and a young friend who encourages her to follow her heart. Time included the play in its “Theatre: Best of the Decade” list, praising Fugard’s compassion and the play’s “Ibsenesque conflict.” The play will be directed by the Pear’s new Artistic Director Elizabeth Craig and will feature emeritus Director Diane Tasca as Miss Helen.
