THE ROAD TO MECCA review
The Road to Mecca is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
In South Africa's Karoo Desert, an eccentric old woman has transformed her own home into a personal work of art. The people in her town think she needs to be put in a nursing home, but there is a younger woman, a kindred spirit, who wants to save the elderly woman and her art.

Athol Fugard (Playwright)
Summary In the South African desert, an eccentric old woman transforms her own home into a very personal work of art, causing the local townspeople to think she should be put into a nursing home.
Age Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation There are moments of beauty in this revival of the Athol Fugard play The Road to Mecca, from the elderly artist Miss Helen's revelation of her deep fear of spiritual darkness to a lovely sequence in which dozens of candles are gradually lit to create a gorgeous stage picture. However, most of the first act moves slowly, featuring an often dull dialogue between the artist and a young visitor who has come to check on her. The second act, in which much of that dialogue finally pays off, is far superior, made all the better by the appearance of the charming Jim Dale as a neighbor who is both friend and foe to Miss Helen.
