Catawba College theatre department to present ‘Twilight Los Angeles’
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,” Anna Deavere 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.
Performance dates: Feb. 13-17
