Note from Anna Deavere Smith

On April 29, 1992, I was in dress rehearsal at the Public Theater for Fires in the Mirror, my play and performance about the August 1991 riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Exhausted from sequestered days of tech rehearsal, scared about ensuing performances of my first play ever to be produced in New York, I returned to my apartment. The answering machine blinking away. A number of friends in Los Angeles had left frantic messages. The city was in flames. The “not guilty verdicts” on the four police officers who beat black motorist Rodney King had cracked the city. How could that brutal beating, captured on video tape and replayed all over the world, for a year, be categorized as within bounds of “reasonable use of force?” And what was a “reasonable use of force” anyway? George Holliday, having heard Rodney King’s screams was on his balcony, still coltish with handling his recently purchased Sony Video8 Handycam CCD-F77. Shaky and blurred though it was, the late Holliday’s footage should have gotten a Pulitzer Prize. It revealed, world wide, that which Americans who live in police-controlled war zones experience every day. The rest of us were, suddenly, to use a contemporary term, “woke.”

Twenty-eight years later, a small cell phone captured in clear color, without blur, leaving little to conjecture, George Floyd being choked to death by Officer Derek Chauvin. On April 20, 2021, breathless seconds before the verdict, few people around the world took for granted that Chauvin would be declared guilty on three charges, including third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. And he was. Much has happened in America since 1992 to cause us to be more vigilant about police brutality and the adamantine system that endorses it.

The late Gordon Davidson, then artistic director of the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, was among those in the audience for Fires in the Mirror which I performed during and immediately following the riots on the other coast. In fact, the riots caused one of those brief peaks of interest about race and so Fires had a sold-out run throughout the summer and could have continued longer. It was not immediately apparent to Gordon that Los Angeles riots should be a source of my next play. By the end of breakfast - at of all places – the Algonquin in New York - we concluded that I should head west in the fall of ‘92 to begin a series of interviews. I interviewed about 320 people in the ensuing eight months. Parts of those interviews provided the content you are about to see tonight.

The sheer land width of L.A. magnifies the diversity of Angelenos. Their dense histories are operatic in scale. I grew up in the Black/white binary of Baltimore, Maryland, a segregated town then and now. Academic and cultural race fashion at the time, was focused on the Black/white paradigm. I saw for the first time, threads I had not yet seen in the ragged tapestry of American identities. Yet, what was variously called a “riot,” an “uprising,” an “insurrection” or simply “the events in LA,” seemed to predominantly, but not entirely, center on an interplay of Black, white, Latino and Asian American individuals. To parse strands of these threads, I invited consultants of four races to join me in often emotional, always intellectually vigorous, sometimes discordant conversations as I wrote the play.

As some of you may recall, I played Twilight as a one-person show during the 1990’s in LA, off Broadway, on Broadway, on tour and as a PBS movie - all forty some roles depending on the incarnation. Revising Twilight for the five extraordinary actors you will see tonight has been a rich experience through which I’ve peered closely, again, at the broken, unwoven, never woven threads of America’s tapestry. With a cast of individuals of different races, we see perhaps the threads crossing, uncrossing and breaking in more resonant ways.

Twilight Bey, a former member of the LA Crips gang, after whom I named the play, got the last word of the outpour of claims, cries, words, insights gathered in 320 interviews. He equates living within the barricades of one’s racial identity - to living in darkness. He concludes:

I can’t forever dwell in darkness.
I can’t forever dwell in the idea,
just identifying with people like me, and understanding me and mine.


Technology has exploded since the time that this play was first presented. Technology promises to bring us close. But it does not create the woven tapestry that never was and may never be. Is a weave the goal? Everyone will have a different answer. In addition to the unfinished political and policy project of equity and opportunity, the moral project of restoring dignity, the arts and entertainment business of emotional renewal and sometimes joy, there’s another project. There is a human–izing project to do. But where? Many long ago left religion. In this secular society we sometimes assume that academia and the arts will human-ize us. Those institutions are in the midst of an urgent and necessary renovation, the need of which became apparent as a result of the pandemic and of George Floyd’s murder. Where could we house a new human–izing project?

The human-izing project, to my mind, is not about eradicating differences. It is not even about eradicating discord. It is not even about tearing down barricades. The humanizing project calls for granular looking and listening. The question, which Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 does not explicitly ask, but only implies, is the same now as it was in 1993 when it was first performed. The question is: “How shall we be gathered?” Not even “how will we come together”? Rather - “how shall we gather”? Many assumptions – take the American Dream for one – seem now like smoke and mirrors. Some rungs of its ladder broke, some were stolen, some were never there at all. We’re in limbo.

-Anna Deavere Smith

Note from Dr. Elizabeth Alexander

President, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Note for the October 2021 digital program of Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992


Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is a significant historic work of art exquisitely timed for 2021.

Though created nearly 30 years ago, Twilight’s prescience lies in its power to capture that past moment of social strife and conflict in Los Angeles while also conveying revelations about our current troubling era.

I was honored to work as a dramaturg on that first unforgettable production of Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 at the Mark Taper Forum in LA. Working in the ashes of Los Angeles in the post-uprising aftermath of the Rodney King trial verdict, I watched with amazement as one visionary – Anna Deavere Smith – interviewed Angelenos from different communities who were not in productive conversation with each other.

She would bring those voices back to the dramaturgical collective, and together we would listen and talk and argue and learn as we heard the truths the voices revealed. Then she took the generative richness that emerged and made it into the extraordinary play we have today.

At that same time, Anna Deavere Smith was learning every part, studying the various languages included in the script, and physically training to inhabit the characters she would bring to life on stage – each one of whom communicated through her alone.

Now, in another time of strife and hopefulness, a team of actors is once more bringing us these voices and making community where there must be community.

It is our great fortune to experience Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 again.
