News   New Lepage Work Opens at London's Hammersmith

Robert Lepage's production of La Casa Azul, by Sophie Faucher, opens at the Lyric, Hammersmith, on Oct. 15.

Inspired by the writings of Frida Kahlo and translated by the Lyric's artistic director Neil Bartlett, the play shows a dying woman (Kahlo) reassembling the images of her extraordinary life as one of Mexico's foremost painters.

Playwright Sophie Faucher plays Frida Kahlo in this tribute to a great artist and her tempestuous life, and it is also a tribute to Faucher's writing that she has attracted a director of Robert Lepage's international standing.

La Casa Azul runs through Oct. 26.
