Why See The Mountaintop?
In Honor Of the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's Death
The 2009 Laurence Oliver Award-winning production of acclaimed African-American playwright Katori Hall's The Mountaintop makes a timely return to the US this winter in this moving production by Memphis' Orpheum Theatre Group.
The poignant production dramatizes the last night on earth of the Father of the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His assassination on April 5th 1968 is well documented, but what went on in his motel room the night preceding it is the stuff of historical legend. Hall imagines what could have gone on that evening, giving the audiences glimpses of King's humanity and inner-thoughts as he converses with a motel maid.
Opening night: 28 March 2018
