The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. Yet, racial tensions remain a challenge for communities everywhere.

In this internationally acclaimed play, playwright Katori Hall fantasizes about what may have transpired in the overnight hours between the legendary civil rights leader and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid. Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, THE MOUNTAINTOP is rife with humor and political jabs along with glimpses at the human side of Martin Luther King Jr. Punctuated by the immortal line, “I’ve been to the mountaintop,” the celebrated Reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality.

We are excited to welcome LA Theatre Works back to Oxford! When they perform at Miami University, they never disappoint!
Contains some mature language.
