FREE FOR WSU STUDENTS!

L.A. Theatre Works – Susan Albert Loewenberg, Producing Director – Presents
THE MOUNTAINTOP
By Katori Hall

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop explores the human side of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. as he forms an unlikely friendship with a motel maid on the eve of his assassination. Hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality.

“A powerful, poetic take on [King’s] legacy . . .”
Los Angeles Times

“Wondrous, hilarious, and heartbreaking . . .”
The Independent

L.A. Theatre Works has been the foremost radio theatre company in the United States for more than 25 years, broadcast weekly on public radio stations as well as international outlets including the BBC.

Copresented by WSU Performing Arts and the WSU Office of Equity & Diversity.
