You can use a trick by a 40-year pro painter friend of mine.
Scrape the loose plaster out of the crack with a can opener point.
Cut 6"-8" wide strips of black vinyl screen "wire", and mud the strips over the cracks just as you would sheetrock tape.
Works like a charm, and the cracks won't come back.
Good Luck!

Buy a roll of fiberglass mesh for setting type joint compound. Tape the joints. Mix the setting compound thin and apply. the patch should span about 12 inches by the time you feather it out with 2-3 coats.
