ABOUT THIS PLAY:
An original, unique and thought-provoking 1-man interpretation of the many facets of Martin Luther King, Jr., including the complex human side of him. This is not imitation and mimicry, but an inspiring work that the man himself would respect and be proud of. An informative perspective that brings the man to life – from the realm of mythical icon and subject of 1 day in January to a real live human being. These performances have touched audiences from high school to age 85.
NOTE: AUDIENCE TALKBACK/DISCUSSION and FREE RECEPTION (hosted by Harvard Club of the Research Triangle) follows performance.
