Developed at Bootleg Theater

Created & Performed by Roger Guenveur Smith

Smith’s performance is inspired by the life and times of the late Rodney King, whose savage beating by the LAPD sparked the riots/rebellion/uprising/insurrection of 1992.
25 years later, King’s saga still resonates in a performance which the New York Times called “sinuous, complicated, deeply moving.”

This show has toured around the nation receiving widespread praise. Now, the show can be viewed in Netflix (produced by Spike Lee)
