Set in room 306 of Memphis’ Lorraine Hotel on April 4, 1968, The Mountaintop paints a portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the last night of his life. Uneasily writing a speech in his dingy room, King orders room service and finds a lively conversation companion in Camae, the maid who delivers his food. Their shared words reveal “a relationship that is breathtaking, hilarious and heart-stopping in its exchanges and in its speedy ability to reveal character and pull the audience into the ring,” according to the Independent.
