Curve and MAST Mayflower Studios present

The Mountaintop

Sat 21 Sep - Sat 5 Oct 2024



After making his monumental ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’ speech against the advice of his colleagues on Wednesday 3rd April, 1968, Dr Martin Luther King checks into room 306 of the Lorraine Motel. Exhausted, conflicted and alone, he orders room service, but instead finds himself served with some unexpected questions from the audacious waitress who unflinchingly cross-examines the makings and misgivings of a hero.

TheMountaintop explores the place where hope and history converge in this captivating, emotional and heart-stopping retelling of Dr. Martin Luther King’s last night on this earth.

Sponsored by Leicester-based music licensing company PPL PRS as part of Black History Month at Curve.
