NEW YORK (AP) - Rosemary Harris and Carla Gugino will star in a production of “The Road to Mecca” on Broadway this winter.

The play by Athol Fugard explores the life of an elderly widow who has transformed her home into a shimmering work of art full of sculptures. A pastor and a young teacher battle over whether she should be put in a retirement home.

Previews will begin Dec. 16 and opening night will be Jan. 17 at the American Airlines Theatre. It will run until March 4.

Fugard’s plays include “Master Harold… and the Boys,” “The Blood Knot” and “Hello and Goodbye.” The Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of “The Road to Mecca” kicks off Fugard’s 80th birthday celebration in the city.
