The Mountaintop

The Mountaintop

10. bis 22. Feb. 2020
The Mountaintop is set at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis in 1968. It is the night before Martin Luther King is assassinated, the night before he delivered a speech in which he foretold his own fate: I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight, that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.

Katori Hall weaves a powerful, surrealistic fantasy about a conversation between King and a mysterious hotel maid who brings him a cup of coffee. Their meeting 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 faults who was nonetheless capable of inspiring millions to hope and move toward a momentous societal shift for equality and justice.

The Mountaintop literally explodes into metaphysical magic realism, ruminating on race and politics, life and death in ways that connect King’s legacy to every person in the audience. Hollywood Reporter
