Signature Theatre Presents Twilight 2020: Anna Deavere Smith & Twilight Bey on Monday, September 14 at 5pm.
In this special 3-part SigSpace Summit series, Anna Deavere Smith invites guests to have candid conversations about how the protests for the arrests of George Floyd’s killers and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement echo the events around the arrest and beating of Rodney King revisited in her play, TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES, 1992.
In the first installation, nearly 30 years later Anna interviews Twilight Bey, the activist for whom Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is named after and whose monologue closes the play. He is the lead Social Intervention Specialist and co-founder of the London based The Social Solutions Institute for Research & Development.
