The Mountaintop on Thursday 18th October 2018

An intimate look into the quieter moments of Martin Luther King’s life.

April 3, 1968. The smell of cigarettes and coffee hangs thick in the air as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. winds down from a day of preaching and marching. An intimate look into the quieter moments of King’s life, The Mountaintop chips away at the myth of the great man to expose his fears about his family, his country and the ever-looming threat of a violent death. Set during the height of America’s Civil Rights Movement, Katori Hall’s sharp and powerful play confronts the legend and his legacy. Are we really free or do we live in a world of false liberation? In the 50th anniversary year of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, this Olivier Award-winning play about King’s last night on earth embarks on its first UK tour, following a sold out run at the Young Vic. “With riveting performances, this two-hander simmers with tension and is suffused with wonder, awe and dread” ★★★★ The Times “Weise directs with bounce and brio” ★★★★ Evening Standard
