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. Launched in 2008, the L.A. Views series embraces a different City of Angels theme each year. Previous L.A. Views productions explored the concepts of hunger, gentrification and the wanting of community, as well as the famous former residents of Company of Angels Home at The Alexandria Hotel.
