The Mountaintop


By KATORI HALL
Directed by JAN ALEXANDRA SMITH
Starring KEVIN HANCHARD
and BERYL BAIN


CANADIAN PREMIERE

The night before his assassination, Martin Luther King, Jr. retires to room 306 in the now famous Lorraine Motel in Memphis. When a feisty young maid visits him to deliver a cup of coffee, King is forced to confront his life, his legacy and the future of his people. A truly original and unexpected look at what it means to feel human in a fight for humanity.


Theatre gives you the opportunity to tell stories in surprising ways. This play contains laughter and spirituality with a stunning dose of magic. See a hero in an astounding and deeply stirring way. England awarded this the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010.
