On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated outside room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. What happened inside room 306 the night before is a mystery. Rife with humor and political jabs, The Mountaintop explores what may have transpired in those overnight hours between M.L.K. Jr. and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid. Now, 50 years after his death, glimpse the human side of a civil rights legend in this Olivier Award winner for Best New Play, presented in a unique radio-theater style.
