After the huge success and standing ovations of the first run, it’s back! Winner of the Olivier Award, and starring multi-award winning actor David Wurawa and Kudra Owens The Mountaintop dramatizes the night before Martin Luther King is assassinated and after he delivered a speech where he foretold his own fate, I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight, that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.
Katori Hall weaves a powerful, poignantly funny, surreal fantasy about a conversation between King and a mysterious maid who brings a cup of coffee to his motel room late at night. Their meeting prompts him to confront his life, his past, his legacy and the plight and future of African-Americans. Hall's insight, light touch and lively mood depicts King as a man with very human faults who was nonetheless capable of inspiring millions to hope and move toward equality and justice.
Very human … a hyper-realistic production full of humour and magic. Falter 2020
