Presented by Curve in association with Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage and sponsored by PPL PRS.

Join Curve this Black History Month for a rehearsed reading of Katori Hall’s powerful drama, The Mountaintop. This special performance is in association with Curve Associate Company Serendipity and sponsored by PPL PRS.

After making his monumental “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech against the advice of his colleagues on Wednesday 3 April 1968, Dr Martin Luther King checks into room 306 of the Lorraine Motel.  Exhausted, conflicted and alone, he orders up room service, but instead finds himself served with some unexpected questions from the audacious waitress who unflinchingly cross-examines the makings and misgivings of a hero.

The Mountaintop explores the place where hope and history converge in this captivating, emotional and evocative retelling of Dr Martin Luther King’s last night on this earth.
