About this show

Directed by Anthony J. Haney Best New Play 2010, Olivier Award | Regional Premiere A Memphis motel, 1968. First night for a sassy maid--last for an icon of our time, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fresh from the speech of a lifetime. In a breathtaking journey beyond realism, this provocative London/Broadway hit imagines the night before tragedy, burnishing a legend while revealing the flesh-and-blood man behind it. Humorous, magical, it is a daring rumination on life, legacy, and conviction that connects each of us in a remembrance of unforgettable things past. Contains mature language. "Emotionally powerful...theatrically stunning." Variety
