Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992
by Anna Deavere Smith
January 28 - February 21, 2016
Directed by David Cecsarini
A Milwaukee Premiere
In 1992, Los Angeles burst into chaos as reaction to the verdicts of the Rodney King beating trial swept the city. Out of the need to understand and heal, the author has captured the stirring reports of dozens of witnesses and participants, including King’s aunt, truck driver Reginald Denny and police Chief Daryl Gates. Twenty four years later, this brilliantly diverse kaleidoscope of personal testimony resounds with current times, and inspires us to envision and create an America - finally - with liberty and justice for all.
