WATCH
Declared a “rich, panoramic canvas of a national trauma”

The New York Times

PREMIERING TODAY @ 5pm

This special preview of Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 features actors Esther Chae, Wesley T. Jones, Karl Kenzler, Tiffany Rachelle Stewart and Carmen Zilles in roles originally performed by playwright Anna Deavere Smith, and now re-imagined for new audiences. Declared a “rich, panoramic canvas of a national trauma” by The New York Times, Smith’s transformative study of the 1992 Los Angeles riots reveals the fault lines that set the city ablaze. Directed by Obie award-winner Taibi Magar, the cast will perform select monologues from the play in tandem with historical footage. Casting is subject to change for the 21–22 Season production this fall.

Warning This preview contains footage of extreme racialized violence and instances of racialized and discriminatory language, which viewers may find disturbing. You can find resources for care and more at signaturetheatre.org/twilight-care.
