About the play: 

Fresh off show tours to Oakland and L.A., Smith unravels the myth of “the first reality TV star” in his riveting one-man performance Rodney King tells the story of a flawed, good-hearted everyman – from his harsh entry into the national spotlight to a lonely death at the bottom of his swimming pool. It’s been 25 years since the media turned the spotlight to Rodney King’s treatment at the hands of four police officers, the subsequent acquittal of the involved police officer that sparked angry riots in L.A. and opened eyes across the world. Now, Smith asks us once again, “Can we all get along?”

Let’s talk about it.
