Beginning Saturday, September 25, 2010, L.A. Theatre Works Radio Theatre Series will air The Credeaux Canvas by Keith Bunin, starring Hilary Swank, Chad Lowe, Shirley Knight, and Jeremy Sisto. The broadcast can be heard locally in Southern California on Saturday from 10 pm to midnight on 89.3 KPCC, and can also be streamed on demand at http://www.latw.org/.
In The Credeaux Canvas, we enter the lives of three young people struggling to survive their own “quarter-life crisis.” Hillary Swank stars as Amanda, an under-employed singer whose boyfriend, Jaime, has been disinherited by his family. But Jaime has a plan to turn their lives around … and when he brings his long-time friend Winston into the picture, the three must weigh their friendship against their fortune. The broadcast includes an interview with Keith Bunin, and a feature on art forgery with Michael J. Lewis (Williams College).
