Following the success of Curve’s 2023 rehearsed-reading of Katori Hall’s Olivier Award-winning play The Mountaintop, the theatre is now set to stage a full new production of the drama. Once again directed by Nathan Powell (Sucker Punch, Dogs, The Lies You Tell) and with returning cast members Ray Strasser-King (Sucker Punch) and Justina Kehinde (Girl From the North Country), the Made at Curve and MAST Mayflower Studios co-production will run in Curve’s Studio Theatre from Saturday 21 September to Saturday 5 October, before visiting MAST Mayflower Studios Wednesday 9 to Saturday 12 October.

After making his monumental ‘I’ve Been to the Mountaintop’ speech against the advice of his colleagues on Wednesday 3 rd  April, 1968, Dr Martin Luther King checks into room 306 of the Lorraine Motel. Exhausted, conflicted and alone, he orders room service, but instead finds himself served with some unexpected questions from the audacious waitress who unflinchingly cross-examines the
makings and misgivings of a hero.

The Mountaintop explores the place where hope and history converge in this captivating, emotional and heart-stopping retelling of Dr. Martin Luther King’s last night on this earth.

Tickets for The Mountaintop (Wednesday 9 October – Saturday 12 October 2024) are on
