The Mountaintop

Marietta Theatre
11 Whitlock Ave Marietta, GA 30064

The Mountaintop is a fictional retelling of how Martin Luther King Jr. spent his last night on earth, before his tragic assassination. After delivering his famous "I've been to the mountaintop speech" on behalf of the sanitation workers in Memphis, Martin goes to the Lorraine Motel to rest before another long day of campaigning. His world is spun on its axis when he meets Camae, a beautiful maid, who delivers his room service. At first, they only exchange flirtatious remarks, but soon they start a deep dialogue about Martin's hopes and fears, and the two develop a true understanding. When Camae reveals that she is an angel that has come to prepare him for the soon-to-be-coming afterlife, Martin must confront his fears and face his own mortality. The Mountaintop shows a different side of Martin Luther King: a man who is tired and flawed yet, despite everything, an inspiration. Catch this powerful show at Marietta's New Theatre in the Square.
