‘When light and dark converge, it is an act of creation…’

It’s the mid-19th century and Europe is being transformed by political and cultural revolution. In the midst of all this change, Johanna Van Gogh Bonger is left a widow with an incredible inheritance: 400 unsold paintings, a one year old baby, and a desire to change the world.

This play follows the incredible true story of the woman who single-handedly ensured Vincent Van Gogh’s success. An exploration of grief, desire, guilt and duty, it sheds light on the woman behind the artist.

This is a rehearsed reading of new writing before it heads to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer.

This production is recommended for ages 12 and over.
