L. A. Theatre Works: Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine by Lynn Nottage on Saturday 18 August – tonight August 18, 2007Posted by William Spear in >> News, >> Radio Drama.
Tonight, Saturday 18 August from 10 pm – midnight on 89.3 KPCC, L.A. Theatre Works’ The Play’s the Thing will air Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine by Lynn Nottage. Knocked-up and seriously broke, successful publicist Undine – played by Charlayne Woodard, reprising her New York role – is plunged into a topsy-turvy world of welfare mothers and drug addicts, and forced to confront the family she left behind. It’s a darkly comic rags-to-riches-to-rags tale of falling down and reaching up to find the goodness within. The production also stars members of the original New York cast Daniel Breaker, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Melle Powers and Myra Lucretia Taylor.
