The Mountaintop is set on April 3, 1968 in Room 306 of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. A weary Dr. King, fresh from his legendary “Mountaintop” speech, gets a visit from Lorraine maid Camae. From the minute the motel room door closes, Hall opens a unique window into Dr. King’s mind and heart as he shares his thoughts, fears, hopes, regrets, and dreams for the future, and as he and Camae forge a unique and compelling connection.
