An inspiring reimagining of a moment that changed America forever
2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play
On the evening of April 3, 1968, after delivering one of his most memorable speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. retires to his room in Memphis’ Lorraine Motel. When a knock on the door reveals a hotel maid bearing a cup of coffee, King soon finds himself confronting his past and present, future and legacy—and reconciling the prospect of a life’s work completed without closure. This surrealist retelling of a seminal moment in American history first brought Playwright Katori Hall—winner of the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, author of Broadway hit TINA: THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL, and executive producer of Starz’ P-Valley—to international prominence.
