The Mountaintop, a play by Katori Hill: It’s April 3, 1968 in a room at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. enters Room 306 in the Lorraine Motel in pursuit of shelter from the lightning and thunderstorm outside. He is craving a cigarette and some coffee so he orders room service. The lovely maid Camae enters with a wet newspaper and Dr. King’s coffee. She is fascinated by his charismatic speech, and Dr. King is awe-struck by her beauty and forthrightness. The two engage in conversation and are surprised to find that they have a lot in common. Directed by Jade Arnold and Jerry Sipp.
