Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 was originally performed and conceived by Anna Deveare Smith as a one-woman show. The play is about the 1992 Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of the four police officers involved in the beating of Rodney King. It is told through a series of monologues by real people who were connected directly and indirectly to the riots. Rebecca Zellar is seeking to cast 2-4 Latinx, Black, Asian, and White actors, all genders, ages 13 and up. All actors will be required to be fully vaccinated and updated with boosters. The show will be facilitated by Zellar and will be ensemble led. All actors must be willing to help with the set up and break down of each production. Actors will receive payment. Rehearsals will begin in April and performances will commence in June. Actors will need to share their availability and conflicts for the summer/fall tour. Renee Johnson and Gary Luz are also in the actor ensemble.
