A powerful piece of theater. A young, black, woman playwright gives us her personal vision of Dr. Martin Luther King's last night before he was assassinated. It's a deeply moving portrait of the man behind the myths, done in a way that makes him even more of a heroic for being human. The 2 actors are wonderful, with that rare chemistry that truly brings the characters to life. It's funny, poignant, informative, and best of all, challenges the audience to keep his dream alive - for all of us. Go! Go! Go! You won't be sorry, and the audiences are a heartwarming mix of diversity.

April 3, 1968. Having just delivered his magnificent oration “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” at Mason Temple in support of a sanitation workers’ strike, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. A maid comes to his door with coffee. An unlikely relationship is forged that ventures into the political and personal, compelling him to confront his destiny and the fate of the nation on the eve of one of the most critical moments in American History. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop is presented in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
