Catawba Theatre Arts presents "Twilight: Los Angeles 1992" February 13-17 at 7:30 p.m. in Hedrick Little Theatre on campus.
By: Anna Deavere Smith
Directed by: Beth Homan
This Tony nominated drama documents the aftermath of the acquittal of the four LAPD officers charged with assaulting Rodney King. Constructed solely from interview material with both well-known and anonymous “characters” affected by the beating, trial, and verdict, Smith’s play--originally performed as a one-woman show--gives voice to 36 individuals touched by this now infamous event and the historic riots which ensued. This production, presented by a multi-actor cast, will capitalize on Smith’s signature documentary style to attempt to provide perspective on and promote continued discussion around issues that still resonate powerfully within the context of current events.
