Zoot Suit (Hour One)

Jun 28, 2015

Sun. 7/5 6p: Los Angeles is a city whose progressive values have often rubbed shoulders with periods of civic unrest. Among the most notorious were the Zoot Suit Riots of 1943, when white servicemen targeted young Mexican-Americans who wore the flashy, broad-shouldered attire known as zoot suits. And while tensions between whites and Mexicans had been simmering for years, the flash point was an event known in the tabloids as The Sleepy Lagoon Murder Case, which forms the basis of this story.  Starring Marco Rodriguez, Kinan Valdez, and Gregory Itzin. From LA Theatre Works.

Sun. 6/28 6p: Produced by ZBS. Polly’s sister, Margo Parker worked for a tech company called Enochian Incorporated. When she didn’t like what she saw, Margo quit. Now she feels they’ve come after her, using subliminal mind techniques that have gone beyond mere technology. A tale that combines Enochian spell casting, with ideas of propaganda from Edward Bernays, and the technique of trans cranial alternating current stimulation.

Wow! What a mouth full.
