This magnificent two person play takes a fictional look at the last night of Martin Luther King’s life.

Camae, a maid at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, brings King a late night cup of coffee on 3 April 1968. What follows is a discussion about the gains black people have made in the struggle.

An assassin’s bullet killed King the following day.

David Harewood and Lorraine Burroughs are outstanding in Katori Hall’s play.
