Circuit Playhouse Presents THE MOUNTAINTOP, 1/18-2/10

Written by Memphis native Katori Hall, The Mountaintop is a reimagining of the events of April 3rd, 1968. DR. Martin Luther King, Jr. has just returned to his room at The Lorraine Motel after giving one of his most memorable speeches. When a mysterious young woman visits his room with some surprising news, Dr. King must come to terms with his destiny in the play The Associated Press called a, "thrilling, wonderful, provocative flight of magical realism." Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

The Mountaintop is directed by Tony Horne (Gem of the Ocean; No Niggers, No Jews, No Dogs). Lawrence Blackwell and Detra Payne make their Circuit Playhouse debuts.

The Mountaintop runs January 18 - February 10 at The Circuit Playhouse Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. The Pay What You Can performance is Thursday, January 24th at 8pm.

The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper Street. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at playhouseonthesquare.org.
