Book Mountaintop, The Tickets at the Trafalgar Studios, London

About Mountaintop, The

By Katori Hall
Starring David Harewood and Lorraine Burroughs

Katori Hall’s stunning two-hander THE MOUNTAINTOP transfers to Trafalgar Studios from 16 July, following a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at Theatre503.

The Mountaintop stars David Harewood (Blood Diamond, Robin Hood) as Martin Luther King in a thrilling portrait that makes a man of the legend - exhausted, lonely and  wracked by fears for the civil rights movement which will be his historic legacy.

The night before his assassination Martin Luther King retires to room 306 in Memphis’s now famous Lorraine Motel having given a monumental speech in front of thousands. When he calls room service for a cup of coffee, he gets much more than he expects from the young maid who delivers it.

'***** Nothing short of a triumph… James Dacre’s gripping production' - The Daily Telegraph
'**** The performances in James Dacre’s fluent production strike me as faultless – with Harewood and Burroughs balancing tension with humour, and matters of great moment with the smaller stuff of life.' - The Times
