THE MOUNTAINTOP | Kingston Grand Theatre

THE MOUNTAINTOP

THE MOUNTAINTOP
a Theatre Kingston production
written by Katori Hall
directed by Rebecca Benson

The Mountaintop takes place on the evening of April 3rd, 1968 in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.s motel room in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. King is a prominent leader in the Civil Rights Movement and a proponent of non-violent civil disobedience. He marches, gives speeches and has been arrested several times in support of Civil Rights. Among supporters he is a beloved hero, among opponents he is a dangerous threat to the status quo.

In The Mountaintop, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns from a prophetic speech during the sanitation workers strike and is visited by a mysterious maid, Camae, with a much greater mission than delivering his coffee. Through their intimate and ultimately transformative conversation, we hear the hopes and fears of King both the leader and the man as he is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy. With vivid theatrical imagination and powerful emotion, playwright Katori Hall beautifully fictionalizes the final hours of Dr. Kings life in this Olivier Award-winning drama about leadership, legacy and mortality.

Performances will take place at the Domino Theatre, 52 Church St., Kingston
