Friday, August 16
A staged reading by Alex Alpharaoh

Los Angeles, 1992. The city is engulfed in flames after the acquittal of 4 LAPD officers in the brutal beating of Rodney King. O-Dogg is a modern, Afro-Latinx adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic, written in verse, and using modern vernacular to ignite the chaotic vibrancy of a Koreatown that still feels the scars from this dark LA history.
