I analyze Katori Hall's The Mountaintop. I examine how this theatrical production is a site of resistance based on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s historical figure and the location of his assassination-the Lorraine Motel Room 306. I analyze the text and the space and ultimately consider the epistemic implications of Hall's play.
