Katori Hall, Playwright

Columbia, Harvard and Juilliard educated, Katori Hall planned to be an actress until a fateful assignment at Harvard changed her direction. Instead, she became a playwright. Her play, The Mountaintop, about the final night before Martin Luther King's assassination, won critical acclaim making her the first black woman to win the Olivier Award for Best New Play. Over the tropical flavors of Jamaican dishes, Katori shares how she creates complex characters and how her mission is to be a voice for the disenfranchised and marginalized voices in America.
