A Chipping Norton Theatre production
By Katori Hall

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, exhausted and self-doubting, returns alone to his Memphis motel room and orders up room service. The charismatic waitress who appears with his coffee takes the evening in unexpected directions, leading him to question the mission he has devoted his life to, and what he will leave behind.

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010, this tender, stunningly theatrical play explores the conflict between heroism and humanity, and between the public image and the real person.

Instead of the larger-than-life historical icon, this is an intimate side of Dr King, glimpsed in the last hours of his life.
