Visit www.theatreworks.org Wanda's Picks is a black arts and culture show. Mountaintop looks at the evening before Martin Luther King is killed. The one act play  takes place at the Lorraine Motel the night before. King and Camae, a maid, spend the night together in conversation, comradery and comfort. We meet a King who smokes Pall Malls, is honest about his fears, loves his family, and is a devoted servant to his creator even when the two disagree.
