Inspired by Helen Martins, who lived in Nieu-Bethesda and created the now-famous The Owl House - which is designated a provincial heritage site - The Road to Mecca is the story of a woman`s desire for personal and artistic freedom within the narrow confines of a conservative and highly religious community in the Karoo in early seventies apartheid South Africa.

Athol Fugard wrote this play in 1984, creating the lead role of Miss Helen for the late South African theatre star Yvonne Bryceland.
