Show Notes

What would you do if your city was on fire from decades of racial tension?  Anna Deavere Smith's Twilight: Los Angles, 1992  tells the collective story of the riots which erupted from the not-guilty verdicts of the police officers who beat Rodney King in 1991.  Smith interviewed hundreds of Los Angelenos to gather their viewpoints on this major turning point in their city's history.  She narrowed her one-person performance down to dozens of diverse perspectives.  Theatre Couch invites you to listen to the ones that spoke to us the most.  Topics include:  racism,  community interconnectedness, police/community relations, and civic responsibility.
