Directed by FJT's Tim Rhoze and featuring the stellar theatre artist Jazzma Pryor, "Twilight: Los Angeles" tells the story--from a variety of perspectives--of the 'Los Angeles riots' in the aftermath of the 1991 Rodney King beating.
Deavere has collected fragments of monologues derived from actual interviews that invite and provoke conversation.
"This timely, powerful documentary performance raises questions about race, power, truth, and justice," says Tim Rhoze. "It reveals how myths, misinformation, and misunderstanding can lead to prejudice, stereotyping, and violence."
Run time is 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Space is limited because of socially distant seating: only 20 seats available!
Attendees are required to wear masks while in the building (lobby, theatre, restrooms).
At intermission attendees can go outside for some fresh air.
Proof of vaccination is required at the door. Hardcopy or a copy on your phone.
If a patron does not have proof of vaccination, then a negative Covid test result taken at max. 72 hours prior to attendance must be presented at the door.
Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre is located in the Noyes Cultural Center, 927 Noyes St. (east of Ridge). Founded in 1979, under the name of the Foster Community Theatre, Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre has been thrilling audiences with over three decades of unique, inspirational and invigorating African American and African Diaspora-centered storytelling.
