Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Katori Hall’s fictional account of the quieter moments of King’s life chips away at the myth of the great man and exposes fears about his family, his country and the ever-looming threat of a violent death. Set during the height of America’s Civil Rights Movement, this sharp and powerful play confronts the legend and his legacy in a new production directed by Roy Alexander Weise.
