Directed by Roger Guenveur Smith
Starring Larry Powell and Aja Naomi King
On the evening of April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 on the evening of April 3 is the subject of Katori Hall's The Mountaintop. Hours after King’s final speech, punctuated by his immortal line, "I've been to the mountaintop," the celebrated reverend reveals his regrets as he and a hotel maid talk into the late hours of what will be his final day.
'It is a relationship that is breathtaking, hilarious and heart-stopping in its exchanges
and in its speedy ability to reveal character and pull the audience into the ring.'
