On the evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside of Room 306 in The Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside Room 306 the night before the killing is a mystery. In her internationally acclaimed play, “The Mountaintop,” playwright Katori Hall fantasized what may have transpired in the overnight hours between the legendary civil rights leader and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid.
Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, “The Mountaintop” is overflowing with humor and political jabs. The play also gives us a glimpse at the human side of Martin Luther King Jr. hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop.” The celebrated reverend reveals his hopes, regrets and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality.
Special Event: A post-show talk back featuring the cast will take place immediately after the show followed by a reception hosted by HACC’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity. Please join us!
Sponsored by: Sponsors for this event include the HACC Foundation, WHTM abc27, HACC’s Student Government Association and WITF. Grants and community support include The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
