39 Defaults' international premiere took place at Teatro Stage Fest on June 17, 2012 at the trendy Casa Mezcal. It played to a full house each show and is now returning, November 11th till December 2nd.
The play takes place in real time in a living room. In this intimate setting there will be no border between the piece and the audience, who participate in the performance as the invited “voyeurs” of the evening.
This is a play about idealism and human interactions, about the contrast between ideas and daily necessities.

He is travelling around America giving lectures about this “action”. In New York he gives a talk and meets Liz, who invites him to stay at her place.
