Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway production of Athol Fugard's The Road to Mecca starring RoseMary Harris, Carla Gugino and Jim Dale, will end its limited engagement on Sunday, March 4th at 2:00PM.
The Road to Mecca will have played 34 previews and 56 regular performances at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).
The design team includes Michael Yeargan (Sets), Susan Hilferty (Costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (Lights) and John Gromada (Original Music and Sound Design).
Set in the region of South Africa known as the Karoo, The Road to Mecca tells the story of an elderly woman who has spent the years since her husband's death transforming her home into an intricate and dazzling work of art. The reclusive Miss Helen (RoseMary Harris) has become depressed and appears increasingly unable to care for herself. Pastor Marius Byleveld, who embodies the village's conservative values, is determined to get Miss Helen into an old-age home. Her friend Elsa (Carla Gugino), a young teacher from Cape Town who is deeply suspicious of the patriarchal traditions Byleveld represents, is just as determined that Miss Helen remain free.
