The Mountaintop at Northern Stage

About

Written by Katori Hall
Directed by Roy Alexander Weise

"I am a man, I am just a man."
April 3 1968. Room 306, the Lorraine Motel, Memphis.

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?

Roy Alexander Weise, winner of the JMK Award 2016, directs this revival of the Olivier Award-winning play about King's last night on earth.
