The Mountaintop

Memphis, April 3, 1968. Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is visited by an irreverent and mysterious maid who inspires him to question his spirituality and legacy. Katori Hall's Olivier Award-winning drama is hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "daring, rousing, and provocative." As we reflect on the sunset of the Obama Presidency, Hall takes us to the summit of MLK's historic life and offers a stunning new view of his dream for our nation.
