This provocative piece explores the nuances, flaws and humanity of a civil rights icon.  In this fictional recount of the night before Dr. King's assassination, Hall uses grit, mysticism and magic to give viewers a peek into the turmoil and cost of his life.  Audiences view him wrestling with life and fate. We see the price of being called for a purpose greater than you while dealing with the grief, pain and fear that results from the sacrifice and commitment.   

“The Mountaintop” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
