TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES, 1992 is a stunning new work of “documentary theatre” in which Anna Deavere Smith uses the verbatim words of people who experienced the Los Angeles riots to expose and explore the devastating human impact of that event. From nine months of interviews with more than two hundred people, Smith has chosen the voices that best reflect the diversity and tension of a city in turmoil: a disabled Korean man, a white male Hollywood talent agent, a Panamanian immigrant mother, a teenage black gang member, a macho Mexican-American artist, Rodney King’s aunt, beaten truck driver Reginald Denny, former Los Angeles police chief Daryl Gates and other witnesses, participants and victims. A work that goes directly to the heart of the issues of race and class, TWILIGHT ruthlessly probes the language and the lives of its subjects, offering stark insight into the complex and pressing social, economic and political issues that fueled the flames in the wake of the Rodney King verdict.
To our Theatre Community, Friends and Family of Lakeside Community Theatre:
After weighing the many scenarios to determine the most viable and responsible way to move forward, during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are extremely disappointed to announce that we must cancel the remainder of our current season. This is the path that the Board of Directors has chosen in order to keep our patrons, actors, volunteers and community safe. This decision has not been easy, however, we found this to be the best direction to move in during these difficult times.
We plan on coming back bigger and stronger for our new season! Stay tuned for some special events during 2021 through social media, to be viewed from the safety of your own home. Stay connected with us for these special announcements!
Stand by for our 20th SEASON, starting this fall.
