About the Play

 ENSEMBLE STUDIO THEATRE, LOS ANGELES PRESENTS
THE WORLD PREMIERE OF

WATCHING O.J.
A Play by David McMillan
Directed by Keith Szarabajka
“If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

In an urban neighborhood of Los Angeles, on the morning of October 3, 1995, tension and anxiety ran high as people across a wide cross-section of L.A.’s diverse  population awaited the verdicts in the O.J. Simpson murder case. No matter what you thought about the verdicts,  or what your feelings were regarding O.J.’s guilt or innocence, they will be represented here, as people come in and out of the Perfect Fit Cleaners and its environs during the course of that fateful day. No, O.J. Simpson himself does not appear in the play, but the effects of his presence are felt far and wide among the people whom we do meet in the course of the play. Black , white and Asian, everybody had an opinion , and everybody let it be known, sometimes putting the course of their own lives in jeopardy.
