Perhaps you remember vacations like I do.

During grade school, I saw a lot of the USA in our Chevrolet – as many states as my parents could drive through, several National Parks, and historical spots like Boston and Washington DC. Old enough to travel alone for several weeks, I spent time with my relatives in Utah, as well as with my best friend who had moved far away to Southern California. After high school, I toured Europe with a train pass. As a new homeowner and working mother, I didn’t have time or money to spend on vacations any fancier than camping. Now semi-retired, I chose activities, like hiking or bicycling trips.

Ilana Niernberger, Laura Jorgensen The Road to Mecca at Main Stage West, Sebastopol CA
February 17, 2016
The creative impulse - where it comes from, what triggers it and why - has long been a favorite topic of  discussion. And the “starving artist” struggling for recognition has been featured in gloriously fictional musicals and operas like “American in Paris” and “La Boheme”. The less glamorous but no less compelling stories of real-life artists have also received their share of attention. One of the best of these may be a play called “The Road to Mecca” by South African playwrightAthol Furgard. It premiered at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut in 1984, and off-Broadway in 1988 after runs in London and elsewhere. Furgard also directed and performed in the play himself.
