The Mountaintop

The Alpha Players present
The Mountaintop
By Katori Hall, a 2021 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright

July 30, 31 @ 7:30 & August 1 at 2:00 pm
Florissant Civic Center Theatre (Parker and Waterford Roads, Florissant, MO 63033)

The Mountaintop is a fictional retelling of how Martin Luther King Jr. spent the last night before his tragic assassination. After delivering his famous “I’ve been to the mountaintop speech” on behalf of the sanitation workers in Memphis, MLK returns to his hotel room at the Lorraine Motel to rest. His world is turned upside down when he meets Camae, a mysterious maid, who delivers a cup of coffee. At first, they only exchange playful remarks, but soon they start a deep dialogue about Martin’s hopes and fears. The Mountaintop shows the audience a different side of Martin Luther King – a man who is tired, flawed, yet despite everything an inspiration.
