Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

by Anna Deavere Smith

January 28 - February 21, 2016
Directed by David Cecsarini
A Milwaukee Premiere

Provocatively powerful.
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.
