A Play by Katori Hall at The Frank Collymore Hall, “The Mountaintop,” Presented by the Gale Theatre of Barbados and London
by Bajan Reporter / April 14th, 2013
(CLICK FOR BIGGER) “Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop is artistic dynamite. It explodes the myths that bury Martin Luther King, Jr’s humanity and shatters his image as a stoic martyr. The Mountaintop invites us to see King as a flesh and blood genius with flaws who worked fiendishly to end black oppression while fighting for liberty and justice for all. The dialogue pops off the pages in vernacular wit and folk philosophy; its lines are laced with humour, irony, paradox, signifying magic.” – Michael Eric Dyson. There has been an amazing choice of theatre entertainment this season and it will continue with the work of Winston Farrell in May and the Disapora Arts Festival at UWI but hopefully there is still enough money in your pockets to purchase tickets for the Gale theatre season 2013 which is delivering “Artistic dynamite“. iTicketsBarbados.com and Ticketpal.com
On April 20th which will be the Gala Finale night, patrons will be treated to performances by spoken word artistes Adrian Green and Sonia Brathwaite who will, during the run of the play write pieces about it, and on that night perform them for Gala patrons as part of the overall presentation that night.
