April 3, 1968. In a drab room at the Lorraine Motel, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wants two things; a cup of coffee and a cigarette. What he gets instead is Camae, a brash, irreverent maid on a mission of her own. Their banter quickly turns into something more mysterious and profound, forcing Dr. King to confront his legacy as a leader and a man. Winner of London’s 2010 Olivier Award.
“A beautiful and startling piece… magical, spiritual and touching.” –The Daily Telegraph
