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
