12th Oct 2019
5.30pm | £12 (£10 conc.)

Gaël le Cornec paints an explosive on-stage portrait of Latin America’s greatest female painter. Sharp, witty and bursting with colour, this multi award-winning, critically acclaimed play makes its Bristol premiere. Based on fragments of Frida Kahlo’s biography, letters, extracts from her diary and some interviews, this play powerfully recreates the intimate life of a unique woman, an artist who managed to transfer her vibrant culture and her deepest dramas onto the canvas.
