Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992
This show runs: Evenings, February 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 @ 7:30p.m. and Sunday February 17 @ 2 p.m.
Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 probes the riots that erupted in April of that year, after the first Rodney King trial. It gives a vivid accounting of neighborhoods in chaos, a city in anguish and a country deeply disturbed by the violent images, live and in color, coming over the nightly air waves.
The play portrays nearly four dozen real-life individuals. Some were participants in the riots, others mere onlookers. A few were made momentarily famous by the media; a number still hold on to their anonymity To each the play brings a penetrating eye and a need to know what lurks in the depths of the human heart. The subject may be daunting, but the scale of the investigation isn’t. One person at a time, one idea at a time, one temperament at a time, TWILIGHT builds up a rich, panoramic canvas of a national trauma.
