Miners Alley Playhouse is opening a new play tonight.

The Road to Mecca tells the story of an eccentric elderly artist facing mounting pressure to abandon her independent life for a church retirement home. Out of desperation, she calls upon her only confidant, a fiery young teacher from Cape Town. When the village minister arrives to coax out her decision, the three enter a blazing showdown that pits conformity against free expression… faith in community against faith in oneself.  Set against the charged backdrop of South African apartheid, The Road to Mecca is a beautifully crafted tribute to the artist’s indomitable spirit.

The Road to Mecca will run from tonight through May 4th.  Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 7;30 and Sunday evenings at 6.  Tonight would be a great time to see it, because they’ll be having one of their opening night parties afterwards!
