★★★★, The Stage
'Shayek’s production is a strong one that drills home Dr King’s repeated line: “We’ve still got so much work to do.”'

★★★★½, The Reviews Hub
'The Mountaintop' is a truly inspiring, moving and compelling performance. Do not miss this – it’ll stay with you for a very long time.'

The Mountaintop is the fictional depiction of Martin Luther King's last night on Earth. In his motel room in Memphis, King is visited by Camae, a maid on a much greater mission than delivering his coffee. Gripping, relevant and often humorous Katori Hall's The Mountaintop won an Olivier for Best New Drama. 

Presented by Fio a company intent on diversifying Welsh Theatre. Originally produced at The Other Room.

Mae ‘The Mountaintop’ yn bortread ffuglennol o noson olaf Martin Luther King ar y ddaear. Yn ei ystafell mewn motel ym Memphis, caiff King ymweliad gan Camae, morwyn sydd â phwrpas gwahanol iawn i ymweld ag ef nag i weini coffi.  Yn afaelgar, yn berthnasol ac yn aml yn ddoniol enillodd y ddrama hon gan Katori Hall wobr Olivier am y Ddrama Newydd Orau.

Perfformir y ddrama gan Fio, cwmni â’r bwriad o greu amrywiaeth ym myd Theatr yng Nghymru.  Cynhyrchwyd yn wreiddiol yn The Other Room.


October 2016 @ The Other Room

‘The Mountaintop by Katori Hall is the fictional depiction of the Reverend Martin Luther King's last night on earth before his assassination on April 4, 1968.  Set in a motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, an exhausted King returns from a prophetic speech during the sanitation workers’ strike and is visited by a mysterious maid, Camae, with a much greater mission than delivering his coffee. ‘

As part of Black History Month 2016 and in association with Black History Month Wales and Stand Up To Racism, Fio produced an extremely successful production of this highly acclaimed and award winning show.  Due to both critical and public response we are looking to mount a Welsh tour in October 2017 with support from Creu Cymru, please get in touch if you are interested in finding out more:
