Preview Performances: Aug. 16 – 17

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center

entertaining as hell and hard to watch ... [Jobsite] has done Anna Deavere Smith’s riveting script justice in this live capture from last fall’s production ... there’s a benefit that this multi-camera shoot affords. We’re able to view the 27 characters portrayed by the versatile Andresia Moseley pouring out their souls in closeup ... This is 1992, but it could just as easily be the L.A. Watts riots from 1965, or torn from the headlines following George Floyd’s murder ... Watch this with your friends and children and answer the call to action. – Creative Loafing

When this drama premiered shortly after the uprisings erupting from the verdict in Rodney King’s case, the Los Angeles Times called it “the most comprehensive literary response” that channeled “the cacophony of voices at the city’s heart.” Some 28 years after those events Anna Deavere Smith’s one-person masterpiece continues to reverberate powerfully within the context of our current times.

Jobsite Ensemble member and nationally-recognized spoken word artist Andresia Moseley breathes new life into Smith’s script, taking on over two dozen perspectives including victims, their families, witnesses, law enforcement, politicians, celebrities, and activists.

A “living newspaper,” Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 doesn’t take sides or offer solutions to the complicated, fraught issues but instead presents the consequences from that moment, leaving it in the hands of the audience to consider.
