Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

Oct 5, 2020 - Mar 31, 2021

Encore Performance

By special arrangement with WNET’s Great Performances, Crossroads launches its online season with the film adaptation of what is perhaps Anna Deavere Smith’s best known work, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992. In her signature style, Smith portrays a wide array of people involved, both directly and tangentially, to construct a 360* view of the complexities of both protest and police brutality.

While in residence at Crossroads as one of the company’s original Associate Artists in 1992, Anna Deavere Smith received an important calling to begin developing a response to the tumultuous aftermath of the Rodney King trial verdict. That play, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992, premiered in Los Angeles at the Mark Taper Forum and made national news for its unique and unflinching look at the fallout from the 1992 Los Angeles uprisings.
