Center Theatre Group meets the moment with Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992.

The story is brought to life by an outstanding ensemble of actors.

Twilight is the time of day that exists between darkness and light — a fleeting purgatory between one place and another. Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 traverses the ambiguity of that in-between state through compassionate yet unflinching examination of inequality, racism, [and] injustice.

Nearly thirty years after the Los Angeles uprising following the Rodney King verdict, Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 returns home to the Mark Taper Forum to be reimagined with an ensemble cast for a new generation of audiences. A powerful piece of living record and one of the most important works in the history of the Taper, Twilight is a stunning and seminal play that explores the devastating human impact of the five days of uprising following the Rodney King verdict. From nine months of over 300 interviews conducted during the year following the uprising, playwright and scholar Anna Deavere Smith crafted a play that goes directly to the heart of the issues of race and class. Twilight offers stark insight into the complex and pressing social, economic, and political issues that fueled the flames in the wake of the verdict and ignited a conversation about policing and race that continues today. Originally commissioned by and produced at the Mark Taper Forum, this 30th Anniversary Production is set to captivate our city once again.  

Conceived, Written and Revised by Anna Deavere Smith
