The Mountaintop is a play by American playwright Katori Hall. The play is a fictional depiction of Reverend Martin Luther King's last night; set entirely in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel on the eve of his assassination on April 4, 1968. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel while a storm rages outside. We invite you to see this production by our local theatre company, The Renaissance Guild for a run of ten days.
