3269 Casitas Ave. Los Angeles, Los Angeles, 90039


On October 3, 1995, tensions ran high across Los Angeles as people awaited the verdict in the O.J. Simpson murder trial. Twenty years to the day, David McMillan’s new play returns to the scene with a passionate, multi-racial perspective on that crucial day. As the play’s characters patronize the Perfect Fit Cleaners and neighboring businesses, a volatile discussion about race and social class bubbles to the surface, one that is more relevant than ever.

"As a black teen growing up in L.A., I was fascinated by how people were watching the trial. Specifically, how everybody was viewing the trial through their own distinct racial, cultural, and historical lens. Even now, 'the facts' of the case are often beside the point -- what's illuminating is how we look at those facts. Twenty years later, if the trial can force us to look at our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and most of all at ourselves and our own prejudices and biases -- perhaps some good can come from Nicole and Ron's tragic deaths.
