    The Mountaintop

    ASL Interpreted Performance of The Mountaintop at Central Square Theater, 450 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, Saturday, January 26 2013, 3pm

    The date is April 3, 1968.  Having just delivered his magnificent oration "I've Been to the Mountaintop," at Mason Temple in support of a sanitation workers' strike, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. returns to Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis.  A maid comes to his door with coffee.  An unlikely relationship is forged that ventures into the political and personal, compelling him to confront his destiny and the fate of the nation on the eve of one of the most critical moments in American History.  Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop is presented in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.

    Contains adult themes, profanity, and smoking.  Suggested ages: 13 & up.
