“Twilight: Los Angeles 1992”
A Play by Anna Deavere Smith
Directed by Toni Schaperjohn
9 – 12, 2017
Acclaimed as “an American masterpiece” (Newsweek),Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is a stunning work of “documentary theatre” in which Anna Deavere Smith uses the verbatim words of people who experienced the Los Angeles riots to expose and explore the devastating human impact of that event. From nine months of interviews with more than two hundred people, Smith has chosen the voices that best reflect the diversity and tension of a city in turmoil. A work that goes directly to the heart of the issues of race and class, Twilightruthlessly probes the language and the lives of its subjects, offering stark insight into the complex and pressing social, economic and political issues that fueled the flames in the wake of the Rodney King verdict.
