'The Mountaintop' by Melbourne Theatre Company

This year marks the 50th anniversary of 'March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom' where Martin Luther King was immortalized by delivering one of the most important speech in history.

The recent passing of Mandela and his life-long struggle, along with King's story make us realise how far the world has advanced, become a better place.

However, as this wonderful play tells us, it's still in the process and it's our responsibility to keep challenging

Brilliant performance by Bert LaBonte and Zahra Newman is surely the reason why this play is so powerful, moving and at the same time, hilarious.
The plot is very interesting.
Bringing an imaginary character into King's last moment, revealing his vulnerability, self-doubt and fear, it succeeds in keeping audience mesmerised and engaged.

It all culminates in the final scene that is utterly touching, making this production a memorable one.
