The Mountaintop is a fictional re-imagining of Martin Luther King Jr.'s last night on earth, before his tragic assassination. After delivering his famous "I've been to the mountaintop speech" on behalf of the sanitation workers in Memphis, Dr. King goes to the Lorraine Motel to rest before another long day of meetings and marching.  Who did he talk with?  What did they talk about?  A close-up portrait of a great man and a great leader.  
 
2010 Olivier Best New Play Award
 
CHARACTERS  
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Male, age 39, African-American.  Physical/facial resemblance to the real Dr. King is not required.  The actor in this role must portray both the determination and devotion of a man who knows he is a larger-than-life symbol to millions of people, and the weariness and doubt of a man who knows he is only human.
 Camae: Female, 20s or early 30s, African-American.   Proud, strong, independent – but with occasional flashes of self-doubt or vulnerability showing through.  Not based on any specific real person.    

General note: Actors are encouraged to read the script before auditioning.  Playwright Katori Hall has described this play as a portrayal of Dr. King “warts and all” – a great hero and great leader, but with human weaknesses.  Some people have found this offensive. 
  


Rehearsal commitment is from January 6th through opening on February 14th
Show runs February 14th - March 8th, 2020
