Trigger Warning: there is a gun shot sound effect (no physical gun just a sound effect) which happens at the top of the play in Act (1) and the same scene is repeated at the end of the play in Act (11).


Dream of A King is a new solo-play that revisits the man that is behind the iconic Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

4th April 1968.

Four years after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for his dynamic leadership of The Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King was assassinated.

Set the night of his shooting in a Tennessee motel room, this new solo play explores the extraordinary man behind the legend.

'The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy' (Martin Luther King Jr).
