THE MOUNTAINTOP

November 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£10

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 moment 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 on the night before his death, 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?
