Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 by MacArthur ‘Genius’ award-winning playwright and actress Anna Deavere Smith

In 1991, the violent police assault of African American Rodney King ignited international outrage after being captured on videotape and aired widely. A year later in 1992, in the aftermath of the trial and acquittal of the four Los Angeles Police Department officers charged with assault, protest and riots broke out in the streets of Los Angeles, where the incident took place.

Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is the result of nearly 300 interviews Anna Deavere Smith conducted in a nine-month span with gang members, police officers, lawyers, activists and shopkeepers from a diversity of class and racial backgrounds after the riots.

Although the play is traditionally a one-woman show, our production features a cast of over a dozen actors, who play various characters. Twilight invites audiences to engage in a dialogue around race and racism. Twilight: Los Angeles uses its various characters’ viewpoints to help us all journey to a shared, common ground.”

Looking for actors, technicians, lighting and sound operators, stage mangers, etc.

Prepare for a two-minute monologue.
