THE STORY: In SUNSET FREEWAY, a young actress on her way to an audition is trapped in traffic. Nibbling away at a generous supply of snacks, she primps and chatters on about her life and career hopes, oblivious to the increasingly menacing reports on the car radio of an impending nuclear disaster resulting from computer error.
“The highly theatricalized imagery and free-flowing dialogue represent a return in spirit to Mr. van Itallie’s most celebrated success, America Hurrah.” —NY Times.
