The Mountaintop

On April 3, 1968, after delivering what became his final impassioned speech on behalf of Memphis sanitation workers, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel. A wild storm has been raging outside and he orders room service. When the mysterious housekeeper Camae arrives she brings with her strange and unexpected news that forces King to confront his destiny and his legacy. "The Mountaintop" is a fictional reimagination of Martin Luther King's missing minutes on April 3, a poetic and gripping inspiration from Tony Award-nominee, Pulitzer Prize and Olivier Award-winning playwright and television creator/producer hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, Katori Hall. Reviews “...a beautiful and startling piece, beginning naturalistically before shifting gear into something magical, spiritual and touching” -The Telegraph Winner, Olivier Award, Best New Play
