Why do we love Noises Off? There’s a certain something about a farce on a farce that’s altogether too clever not to talk about in the form of a quick blog post.

On The Mountaintop and Civil Rights in Louisville, with Louisville NAACP President Raoul Cunningham

Raoul Cunningham, President of the Louisville NAACP, joined the creative team of The Mountaintop for our first rehearsal to help provide historical context about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement in Louisville. The Mountaintop is playwright Katori Hall’s vision of an imagined conversation between Dr. King and Camae, a maid at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. The conversation, which ranges from Dr. King’s family life to his concerns about Vietnam and the Civil Rights Movement, occurs the evening of April 3, 1968—the evening before an assassin shot King on the motel balcony. Naturally, we were excited to bring one of Louisville’s greatest civil rights campaigners on board to inform our production. I sat down with Mr. Cunningham for an interview a couple of weeks later to get some of the same information for our audience.
