Winner of London's Olivier Award for Best New Play, this gripping and poetic drama envisions the events that might have taken place the evening before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The fictional reimagining begins on April 3, 1968, as King finishes delivering his impassioned "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. Exhausted, he retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where he encounters a spirited young maid with whom he forges an unexpected relationship. During a conversation that ranges from the personal to the political, King finds himself confronting his own destiny and the fate of the very nation he's devoted his life to. Learn More

This was one of the most hilarious nights I've had with my family! All ages (13-48) Enjoyed thoroughly! Highly recommend it! Also, the theater was a nice surprise! we had never been and we'll be back! All around a fantastic evening! The cast...continued
The story begins with Brian reading the opening narrative of his umpteenth production of A Christmas Carol, when Justin and Nick start to rebel. “Don’t get me wrong, Christmas Carol’s a great story. Fezziwig, redemption, God bless us everyone, Nice ghost, Fat ghost, Scary ghost … but honestly, I’m just doing this ‘cause I need the insurance.” Reluctantly, Brian follows along as the actors launch themselves, and the audience, into a full-scale re-examination of all shows holiday, from Rudolph (with a slight adjustment for copyright issues) to It’s a Wonderful Life (in a second-act mash up that will blow your mind). Traditions from around the world (some more questionable than others) and a finale that includes “Every Carol Ever Sung,” will leave you fully holiday-satisfied, with nothing left to do but wrap those presents and drink that nog.
