VINCENT - HIS QUEST TO LOVE AND BE LOVED Comes to The Drama Factory Next Month

VINCENT is a multimedia cabaret, (Bronze Standard Bank Ovation Award 2022) that tells of a complex man, Vincent Van Gogh, with a ruthless drive to create and a deep-seated desire to love and be loved. Vincent's search for love, is told through reimagined versions of popular musical theatre, pop, rock and jazz numbers.

Towards the end of his short life, Vincent Van Gogh, who suffered from mental illness, was treated by Doctor Paul Gachet. He writes to his brother Theo: "A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke." The 37-year-old painter died of a self-inflicted wound in 1890. On 15 May 1990, The Portrait of Doctor Gachet was sold, within three minutes, for 75 million dollars. "70 million are bid, 73, 75 Million dollars! Sir? I shall then sell it at 75million dollars. Thank you, sir."
