Fasitua Amosa and David Fane - The Mountaintop
The Mountaintop is an award-winning play by African American playwright Katori Hall, based on a fictional account of Martin Luther King's last night on earth at the Lorraine Motel Room in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968. The work, which has never been performed in New Zealand, is set to be staged by an all-Pasifika cast at the Basement Theatre. Director Fasitua Amosa's directing credits include Inky Pinky Ponky and the upcoming Still Life with Chickens, both for Auckland Theatre Company. He'll talk to Kim alongside David Fane (800 Words, Sione's Wedding, BroTown), who steps into the title role as Martin Luther King Jr. The production has been brought to the stage by FCC, a Pasifika theatre collective created by writer, producer and director Victor Rodger.
