THE ROAD TO MECCA

by | Read by Julie Harris, Amy Irving, Harris Yulin and a Full Cast

Poetry & Drama • 2.2 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

The Road to Mecca, by the celebrated South African dramatist Athol Fugard, depicts the struggle of eccentric, reclusive Miss Helen (Julie Harris), whose friend, Elsa (Amy Irving), tries to goad her out of her depression while her pastor (Harris Yulin) attempts to admit her to a nursing home. This idea-rich play probes the concerns of old and young, liberal and conservative, and the secular and religious. The performances are all memorable; Julie Harris movingly brings out the lovable frailty of Miss Helen, and Amy Irving captures both the angry and the caring sides of Elsa. Director Steve Albrezzi’s occasional use of subtle background music highlights the play’s lyrical moments. G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
