THE GALE THEATRE

gale theatreopening-night-company-k-halThe Gale The­atre of Bar­ba­dos and Lon­don cre­ates pop­u­lar, stun­ning and enter­tain­ing, sea­sonal, the­atri­cal per­for­mances on the shores of Barbados.

The non-​profit, char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tion was founded in 2007 by Melissa Sim­monds and allows rich Caribbean tal­ent to merge with UK exper­tise to cre­ate excep­tional, high-​quality works. The team also includes Bar­ba­dian Peter Lewis (com­pany Direc­tor) from Field Tech Stag­ing Solu­tions Inc and British actor Paul McGann. All work is devel­oped, rehearsed and pro­duced in Barbados.

The 2013 SEASON

“The Moun­tain Top”

Always a highly antic­i­pated event, this year April 11th 20th, the Gale The­atre of Bar­ba­dos and Lon­don present The Moun­tain Top, a play by Katori Hall. This Olivier award win­ning, his­tor­i­cal, play set on Dr. Mar­tin Luther King’s, last night on earth is said to be “Won­drous, hilar­i­ous, and heart­break­ing.” Independent

The Plot: The entire play is set in the Lor­raine hotel room, the evening before his assas­si­na­tion. King is alone, try­ing to cre­ate yet another pow­er­ful speech. When he orders a cup of cof­fee from room ser­vice, a mys­te­ri­ous woman arrives, bring­ing much more than a late-​night bev­er­age. What fol­lows is a reflec­tive, often funny, often touch­ing con­ver­sa­tion in which Dr. King exam­ines his achieve­ments, his fail­ures, and his unfin­ished dreams.
