Los Angeles' oldest non-profit repertory theater Company of Angels presents L.A VIEWS V - April 29, 1992 a 10-Minute Play Festival by Company of Angels Playwrights Group, to open April 28 at Company of Angels at The Alexandria.
L.A Views V: April 29, 1992 features 8 short plays set in the 1992 Los Angeles Civil Unrest that followed the exoneration of four LAPD officers involved in the Rodney King beating. The unrest sparked widespread looting, assault, and arson. In all, 53 people died, thousands more were injured, and property damage topped 1 billion dollars. Twenty years later, these plays dig through our City's ashes and offer accounts of a time whose impact on Angelenos is still being assessed. From business owners to looters, newscasters to people trapped in the darkness of it all, a diversity of perspectives shed light on the legacy of 4/29/92.
Playwrights for April 29, 1992 include: Gabriel Rivas Gomez, Jonathan Ceniceroz, Julie Taiwo Oni, Malik Burroughs, Mayank Keshaviah, Michael Patrick Spillers & Nic Cha Kim.
