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.
