Aug. 22-Sept. 8
Katori Hall paints a gripping re-imagination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s last night on earth, set in his room at the Lorraine Motel, as a mysterious stranger arrives with surprising news. This incisive play centers on the humanity of Dr. King—played by Theatreworks favorite, Calvin M. Thompson—in the shadow of his monumental legacy.
The Mountaintop won an Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010 after performances in London's West End, and premiered on Broadway in 2011.
