Enter the heart and mind of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr as he shares a conversation with the hotel maid the night before his assassination. 

This intense, mystical-political two-person drama is about the last day on Earth of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the evening after he delivered his “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech. The entire play is set in his Lorraine Motel room, where Dr. King is alone, trying to create yet another powerful speech. When he orders a cup of coffee from room service, a mysterious woman arrives, bringing much more than he requested. What follows is a reflective, sometimes humorous, often touching conversation in which Dr. King examines his achievements, his failures and shortcomings, and his unfinished dreams.
