About the Play

Fragmented Frida is an original one woman show that tells the journey of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

Fragmented Frida tells the story of the unbroken spirit of a broken woman. This timely piece explores the life, and seeks to capture the essence, of the audacious artist, Frida Kahlo, who overcame seemingly insurmountable adversity. The work presents a complex Frida as revolutionary, provocateur, activist, self-reflexive painter and as a woman in need of love and validation. Frida was a Mexican Jewish bisexual feminist, four strikes, even in the most progressive times. Fragmented Frida taps into the tremendous resilience that allowed this titanic figure to examine her own life and suffering via the canvas so it could be forever preserved as art.


At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
— Frida Kahlo
