Characters: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, La Pelona (who also plays) Tins Moditti, Christina Kahlo, Leon Trotsky, office worker,  nurse and  Russian nurse.

Synopsis: This play which not much of a play in the conventional sense, it depends on visuals as much as verbals follow the life and work of the great Frida Kahlo. It begins with a tourist at La Casa Azul who then becomes Frida herself (this tourist could be anyone regardless of race). During her lifetime Frida kept an intimate Diary in which she filled with images and texts of her public and personal life. Her relationship with herself, Diego and the Russian and Mexican revolution.
