Summary

In 1938, New York City was shocked when actress Dorothy Hale threw herself from the 16th floor of the Hampshire House Hotel on Central Park South. But was it suicide…or something more sinister? Playwright Myra Bairstow weaves this thoughtful theory around the Frida Kahlo painting commissioned by Clare Booth Luce, publisher of Vanity Fair, to honor her fallen friend. As Frida begins to paint in the room where Dorothy lived, she’s haunted by whispers from the past—and from Dorothy herself.
