Play #16: FRIDA

The play takes place one of the galleries in the Art Gallery of Ontario, during the current run of the Gallery’s exhibition, Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting.

Characters in the play:

Two middle-aged women who are seeing the exhibition together and, as the play opens, are both gazing intently at one of Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits.

WOMAN 1 (with great conviction, bordering on indignation):  She wasn’t a Communist!

WOMAN 2: (quick to agree): Why would she be a Communist?
