THE LIFE AND MIND OF MARK DEFRIEST

Expected to Attend: Gabriel London

NYC PREMIERE In 1979, teenager Mark DeFriest received a four-year prison sentence for stealing his own tools. After countless outrageous jailbreak attempts—many humorously recounted here through animated sequences—he’s still incarcerated and will be until 2084. Shortly after his confinement began, Mark’s mental competency was questioned, but the opinion of Dr. Robert Berland, a single dissenting psychiatrist, kept him behind bars. Now, agreeing to re-examine the oddly amiable but troubled Houdini, Dr. Berland may provide the means to finally secure Mark’s freedom.
