October 14 – October 29, 2017
at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts

April 3, 1968: After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, “I Have Been to the Mountaintop”, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel amidst a raging storm. When a mysterious stranger arrives at his door, Dr. King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy as a leading figure in the American Civil Rights Movement.

“During the next 85 intermissionless minutes, the tension will steadily seep out of “The Mountaintop,” despite a teasing mystery at the center of its plot.”  –  The New York Times, January 2012

“This isn’t the play for new discoveries or revelations about King the man, but it’s a powerful, poetic take on his legacy — its triumphs and still-unfulfilled promises — from the perspective of a generation that followed him.” – Los Angeles Times, February 2016
