SPIRITUAL AWAKENING: A South African widow who finds herself at a crossroads in 'The Road to Mecca.'

Penned by Athol Fugard, The Road To Mecca follows the story of Miss Helen, a South African widow who finds herself at a crossroads. Harboring an unconventional artistic ability, she must choose between the advice of an old friend to conform to society and the urges of a younger one to follow her heart. Elizabeth Craig, The Pear’s new artistic director, takes the helm, while emeritus director Diane Tasca picks up the lead role as Miss Helen. The play runs through Feb. 11.
