The Mountaintop by Katori Hall
Directed by Audrey Dwyer
As a storm rages on April 3, 1968, civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel. Exhausted, jumpy and craving a cigarette, King wrestles with his next speech. When a beautiful maid delivers coffee to the room, small talk veers into a surprising conversation that exposes the preacher’s vanity, vulnerability and uncompromising humanity. In this gripping reimagination of the night before King’s assassination, we witness the hope and struggle of a man who must confront his destiny and his legacy to the people.
