April 3, 1968. The Lorraine Motel,

Memphis, Tennessee.

Outside, a controversial war rages on and Black Power is on the rise.

Inside, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is struggling with the future of the movement, feeling the weight of extraordinary public expectations, haunted by doubt and regret… and stalked by the ever present threat of death.

You know his name, you’ve heard his “Dream”, but who is the MAN in room 306?

Written and Performed by Craig Alan Edwards

  1. Tonight I had the unique pleasure of seeing “The Man in Room 306” in the company of the Associate Editor of the award winning PBS documentary, “Citizen King”, Barnard Jaffier – as well as with the make-up artist for this production, Jennifer Snowden, who had worked with Craig on a number of previous productions over the last 10 years. Definitely a Thrice Blessed.

    End result:

    1. anticipate being surprised in ways you had not anticipated . 2 Bring a tissue or two. 3. you will not have to worry about applauding loudly enough – that’s a given.

    It IS a true winner and worth the journey to see!


  2. A truly remarkable performance by Craig Alan Edwards!!

    Craig transforms himself into the late Dr. King…it’s incredible?!!

    On the 40th anniversary of Dr. King’s murder, ironically, another African American figure is poised to guide this nation in the RIGHT DIRECTION.

    Go see this performance, NOW?!!
