1968.The Lorraine Motel Room in Memphis, Tennessee. Room 306. Martin Luther King has just delivered what will be his last speech, “I’ve been to the Mountaintop”.

In his hotel room, he waits for an aide to bring him some cigarettes, but instead he meets Camae, a feisty maid who is not what she seems.

Pasifika Theatre movement FCC is bringing internationally acclaimed play The Mountaintop by African American playwright Katori Hall to the stage with an all Pasifika cast and director.

Based on a fictional account of Martin Luther King's last night on earth, The Mountaintop is an award-winning historical imagining just as relevant in today's tumultuous times of Black Lives Matter and Charlottesville as in 1960s America. Written by Katori Hall, the work has never been performed in New Zealand or by Pasifika actors in the starring roles.

Starring David Fane and Nicole Whippy. Directed by Fasitua Amosa.
