Neptune Theatre and Black Theatre Workshop presents THE MOUNTAINTOP by Katori Hall

A moving interpretation of Martin Luther King Jr.'s final night.

On the evening of April 3, 1968, after delivering his speech "I've Been to the Mountaintop," the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. retires to room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. The next day, he would be assassinated. In this moving production by playwright Katori Hall, Dr. King's final hours are re-imagined as he confronts his destiny and legacy as a leading figure in the Civil Rights Movement.
