Owl House Reviews
More info about Owl House
But for the Owl House, Nieu-Bethesda would be just another one-horse town passed over by motorists travelling across the Karoo desert in the Eastern Cape Province. It is also thanks to local playwright Athol Fugard that the Owl House has received such wide appeal amongst tourists. His play titled ‘The road to Mecca’ tells the true story of Helen Martins, an elderly artist who, after a divorce and left alone following the death of her parents, she refused to enter a nursing home and instead began to create her own piece of paradise in Nieu-Bethesda which she named the Owl House. She was mostly shunned by the villagers but this didn’t deter her from decorating the interior of her inherited home in spectacular glass and mirror work with interesting lighting. Her back yard holds over 300 sculptures which she constructed with the help of a man named Koos Malgas.
