The Front Row

Katori Hall

Young African-American playwright Katori Hall talks about her historical fantasy The Mountaintop, which imagines what might have happened when a seductive and somewhat mysterious young maid visits Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis and challenges the civil-rights leader to confront his identity and his fate on the night before he was assassinated. The play is having its regional premiere at the Alley Theatre.
