    Presented by the College of Fine Arts (The University Series)

    In this award-winning Broadway play, author Katori Hall imagines a provocative conversation between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a mysteriously shrewd motel maid on the night before King’s death. Shortly after saying, in his final speech, "I've been to the mountaintop," King finds himself in a poetic and stormy clash of perspectives as performed by acclaimed radio theatre company L.A. Theatre Works. Contains mature language and controversial themes.
