Kilkenny-based theatre company, Red Alchemy, is presenting a National Tour of Vincent – A Play: a beautiful piece about the life of Vincent Van Gogh. This powerful, moving play was written and originally performed on Broadway by Leonard Nimoy (better known to audiences as Star Trek’s Mr. Spock), for which he garnered a Tony Award.
In this Irish première, against the visual backdrop of over one hundred of his greatest masterpieces, director Christine Scarry and actor Peter McCamley gloriously recreate the world of the misunderstood genius, giving the audience a moving insight into the turbulent life and times of the great painter. Anyone who loves art, passion and life itself should see this play; it is a renewing experience and an insight into one of history’s most gifted, haunted masters.
After hugely successful performances in Kilkenny, Mullingar, Thurles and Wexford, audiences in Waterford now have the opportunity to experience the glorious art and life of Van Gogh in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Saturday, 2nd February, 2019 before it moves on to theatres in Portlaoise and Dublin.
