4th April 1968. Four years after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for his dynamic leadership of the Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King was assassinated.


Set on the night of his shooting in a Tennessee motel room, this new solo play explores the extraordinary man behind the legend and seeks to discover the man behind the icon giving audiences the opportunity to learn more about King’s passion, empathy, inspiration, dedication, philosophy, intellect, and vision.


"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy" Martin Luther King, Jr
