Life Lessons

This bilingual “dramedy” by Spanish playwright Eduardo Galán returns by popular demand after its 4-week, world premiere run in June at Thalia Theater.

Lecciones de vida

  • Written by Eduardo Galán and directed by Ángel Gil Orrios.
  • Two different casts alternating performances: Soledad López and William Saquicela in Spanish, and Kathy Tejada and Bill Blechingberg in English.

A cultivated teacher and an uneducated fishmonger engage in a duel of personalities through several juicy parent-teacher school meetings. She is debating if she should retire or continue teaching, and he is the poor father of a very troubled teenager student in need of help.
