The Alpha Players present The Mountaintop By Katori Hall July 30, 31, 7:30 pm & August 1 at 2:00pm Florissant Civic Center Theatre (Parker and Waterford Roads, Florissant, MO 63033) Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Playwright Katori Hall also received the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for The Hot Wing King. Limited seating to this inspiring performance. Get your tickets early. The Mountaintop is a fictional retelling of how Martin Luther King Jr. spent the last night before his tragic assassination. After delivering his famous “I’ve been to the mountaintop speech” on behalf of the sanitation workers in Memphis, MLK returns to his hotel room at the Lorraine Motel to rest. His world is turned upside down when he meets Camae, a mysterious maid, who delivers a cup of coffee. At first, they only exchange playful remarks, but soon they start a deep dialogue about Martin’s hopes and fears. The Mountaintop shows the audience a different side of Martin Luther King - a man who is tired, flawed, yet despite everything an inspiration. Tickets: $15 Warning: Some adult language Limited tickets available to enable social distancing, masks encouraged.
