Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy, upcoming Freeform drama Cruel Summer) and Seamus Dever (Castle) star in Kenneth Lin's inspired-by-a-true-story play.

How much is one life worth? When a billionaire dies in a plane crash, a forensic economist butts heads with a small town actuary over the exact value of one man's life.

The cast also features Kevin Daniels (Coop and Cami Ask the World, Council of Dads, Modern Family), Summer Spiro (Platonic) and Mark Jude Sullivan (Michael Wakins). The recording was directed by Rosalind Ayres.

Life on Paper, a finalist at the Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference, is part of L.A. Theatre Works' Relativity Series of science-themed plays, with lead funding provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

Will include Zoom conversation with playwright Kenneth Lin by LATW Producing Artistic Director, Susan Albert Loewenberg.
