About this show

Hailed as "daring, rousing and provocative" by Entertainment Weekly, The Mountaintop is Katori Hall's bold reimagining of the last night of the historic life of Dr. Martin Luther King. Exhausted from delivering a significant speech, Dr. King rests in his room at the Lorraine Motel when an unexpected visit from a feisty, young maid compels him to confront his own humanity and the fate of our nation. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop's "soul-stirring" (Variety) storytelling fuses theatricality with spirituality to reach a summit that will leave audiences breathless.
