MIJITA FRIDITA

ABOUT THE PLAY
As a child during the Mexican Revolution, young Frida helps her mother to dress the wounds of soldiers and discovers the world of photography though her father. With the onset of Polio, her parents keep her away from bullies and other harm in the streets, but she is so lonely.
With the help of her imagination, she discovers a world of her own, beyond the four walls of her room, where she can play and dance, and be herself. Her imaginary friend takes her to a fiesta with all the characters of her imaginings. There she discovers who she truly is, and sets off on her own to become the legendary artist that continues to inspire.
