Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

One verdict can change the course of history. The news of the police officers’ acquittal in Rodney King’s police brutality case reverberated throughout the streets of Los Angeles. Variously called a “riot, a revolution, or a social explosion,” the events that followed the verdict drew worldwide attention. Playwright, actor and scholar Anna Deavere Smith responded artistically by dissecting the anatomy of the unrest. She interviewed over 350 Los Angelinos in preparation for the performance.

SYNOPSIS: A one-woman show portraying nearly 40 real-life individuals as they reflect on the events following the Rodney King beating trial verdicts. (Performance)
