The Mountaintop play by Katori Hall was brilliantly staged last night Gbolahan Obisesan was Martin Luther King and Rochelle Rose Camae. Electrifying performance and really valued Q&A afterwards. Tell your friends about the NST Threatre. Great coffee and Licenced Bar.

An enthralling and very powerful performance revealing not only tribal cultural differences in S Africa but far worse, reflections of a British Empire racist attitude towards people of colour (maybe improving but still apparent now Viz; #Windrush, BREXIT in part, etc.). A voyage to disaster...More
