Martin Luther King stands on the balcony of a Memphis motel, exhausted and troubled. It is five troubled years since the words “I have a dream” shook Washington and the world. His liberal allies in government have deserted him for his opposition to Vietnam, his leadership of the Civil Rights movement is challenged by the radical followers of Malcolm X who accuse him of selling out to the white establishment, his own staff fear he has lost direction as he broadens his targets to include poverty itself, and above all his creed of non-violence is mocked and outflanked by extremists and those who simply see it as a form of surrender. Meanwhile the scheming Edgar Hoover of the FBI holds a dossier on his private life that might be released to the press and President any day now with heaven knows what effect on his reputation.

The contradictions in America and its great myth as a land of opportunity are brought into startling and dramatic focus by this new work. A play which honors a true martyr but also recognizes that he was a frail human who lived to make the American dream real but died in the American nightmare.
