This two-person show will have you spellbound as you are transported back in time. Directed by Jackie Welch Schlicher, starring Mary McCallum and Rashad "ThaPoet" Rayford. Taking place on April 3, 1968, The Mountaintop is a gripping re-imagining of events the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis while a storm rages outside.
