Anna Deavere Smith: Four American characters

I am a great fan of this actor. You may well recognise her.

Writer and actor Anna Deavere Smith gives life to author Studs Terkel, convict Paulette Jenkins, a Korean shopkeeper and a bull rider, excerpts from her solo show “On the Road: A Search for American Character.”

Anna Deavere Smith’s ground-breaking solo shows blur the lines between theatre and journalism, using text from real-life encounters to create gripping portraits.
