Hall’s new play is set in King’s Memphis hotel room on the eve of his assassination, a night when the civil rights leader is forced to confront his past and the future of his people when a mysterious maid (played by Lorraine Burroughs) visits him. Harewood is best known to theatregoers for his leading Shakespearean credits for the RSC, National and elsewhere while his many screen credits include the film Blood Diamond. The Mountaintop is directed by James Dacre, son of Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre.
