To celebrate the 85th birthday of theatre giant and UCT alumnus Athol Fugard, the Fugard Theatre announced its first staging of The Road to Mecca.
This extraordinary tale of a woman’s struggle for personal and artistic freedom within a conservative community and an oppressive political system, seemed a perfect way to mark the occasion.
“Athol Fugard has committed his career and life to restoring our sense of a common humanity. To masterfully pricking our consciences to the injustices of apartheid, inequality and the inadequacies of the new dispensation,” said Eric Abraham, founding producer of the Fugard Theatre.
The Road to Mecca will run during April and May 2018.
Tickets go on sale from Friday, 7 July. To pre-book, call the theatre box office at 021 461 4554.
