By Katori Hall

At the most human level, we are all the same. Hours after delivering his iconic “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech, Martin Luther King Jr. returns to his room at Memphis’ Lorraine Motel to plan for his next march. Soon after, a motel maid arrives at his door with a newspaper, a cup of coffee, and the news that he won’t live past tomorrow. Her revelation spurs an all-night conversation that illuminates the humanity behind the Civil Rights icon as King reflects on the man he is and the man he hoped to be. Written in honor of the individuals that Dr. King inspired but never met, Katori Hall’s Olivier Award-winning play is a stunning imagining of King’s last night on Earth.
