50 words: THE ROAD TO MECCA by Athol Fugard at Profile Theatre

A very strong debut from new Artistic Director Adriana Baer. Intriguing in-the-round configuration never before seen at Profile (I believe) turns space into an entirely new venue. All three cast excellent, Amanda Soden particularly powerful. The play is long in parts and sometimes could cut faster to the dramatic quick.
