Winner of  the Olivier Award and set to open on Broadway in September 2011, The Mountaintop is set at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis in 1968, on the night before Martin Luther King is assassinated and on the day he delivered a speech in which he foretold his own fate, “I may not get there with you, but I want you to know that tonight, we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” 

Playwright Katori Hall takes this historic date with destiny and weaves a powerful surrealistic fantasy about a conversation between King and a mysterious hotel maid who brings him a cup of coffee and prompts him to confront his life, his past, his legacy and the plight and future of African-Americans. Hall's insight, light touch and lively mood depicts King as a real man with very human foibles who was nonetheless capable of inspiring millions to hope and move toward a momentous societal shift for equality and justice.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play 2009, The Mountaintop is a historical-fantastical two hander and portrays the penultimate days in the life of Martin Luther King. The night before his assassination King retires to room 306 in the now famous motel after giving an acclaimed speech to a massive church congregation. When a mysterious young maid visits him to deliver a cup of coffee, King is forced to confront his past and the future of his people. Katori Hall s award-winning play is heartbreaking, humourous and breathtakingly powerful. A lively mood and hints of surrealism and fantasy is combined with a clear-eyed view of the man behind the legend. She depicts King as a real and at times flawed man, but nevertheless inspirational and capable of effecting momentous societal shifts. This is a story which crosses continents, colour and generations, and remains as relevant today as it was in the midst of the civil rights movement in 1968. Portraying rhetoric, hope and ideals of social change, The Mountaintop also explores being human in the face of inevitable death. The play is a dramatic feat of daring originality, historical narration and triumphant compassion. Bookseller Inventory # AAW9781408147030
