“Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for New Play and Broadway hit starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, The Mountaintop is a surrealistic fantasy about a chance encounter between Martin Luther King, Jr. and a mysterious hotel maid who brings him a cup of coffee and prompts him to confront his life, his past, his legacy and the plight and future of his people.”

About PlayMakers Ground Floor

Studio Productions from the Professional Actor Training Program

At the heart of every theatrical production, regardless of scope, are the artists who posit questions about the human experience. PlayMakers Ground Floor is an occasional series that engages our graduate acting company in material chosen (and sometimes written) specifically for them. These studio productions focus on the actors and the marrow of their process, and are led by insightful and resourceful directors from within the company or those visiting on fellowships.
