This is a city at war with its own children.

Overview

This is a city at war
with its own children

When the policemen accused of assaulting Rodney King were acquitted, deadly riots broke out across LA.

Obie Award-winning writer-performer Anna Deavere Smith interviewed hundreds of people from police commissioners to Rodney King's family about those devastating few days in the summer of 1992.

These are their words.

The fact of the matter is
whether we like it or not
riot
is the voice of the unheard.

Critic reviews

Young actress Nina Bowers is impressive as she scampers around the audience, or holds us with her stillness.

Time Out

Bowers, lithe and nimble in a blue jumpsuit, never loses the narrative thread even while playing a multiplicity of characters.

The Guardian

Nina Bowers does her absolute best to hold it all together by the sheer force of her energy and commitment.
