Vincent In Brixton by Nicholas Wright
Monday 24 October Post Show Q&A
Friday 28 October, 7pm Captioned Performance
Look at this drawing. Look at it. What do you see? A house. What kind of a house? Can you tell? I can’t. Look at that line. What kind of artist uses a ruler?
A young Vincent van Gogh arrives in Brixton, 1873.
While lodging with a widowed teacher and her daughter, he discovers a house filled with secrets and lies. Vincent, in falling first for the daughter and then the mother, is drawn inexorably towards sorrow and pain.
Three years later he returns to Europe on the first step of a journey which will end in breakdown, death and immortality.
