What's On Stage
"I am a man, I am just a man."
An intimate look into the life of Martin Luther King. The Mountaintop chips away at the myth of the great man exposing his fears about his family, 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?
Roy Alexander Weise (Nine Night, National Theatre), winner of the JMK Award 2016, directs this revival of the Olivier Award-winner about King's last night on earth.
