JEFF RECOMMENDED! AFTER DARK AWARDS FOR PRODUCTION OF A PLAY, ACTOR IN A PLAY, AND DIRECTOR OF A PLAY
Vincent in Brixton is a coming-of-age play loosely based on VanGogh's early years in London in 1873. A brash young Dutchman, working for a London Branch of an international firm of art dealers, Vincent rents a room in the house of an English widow. Three years later, he returns to Europe on the first step of a journey which will end in breakdown. Vincent in Brixton is about the transforming effect of love, sex and artistic adventure on unformed talent. It traces the birth of a genius.
In 2003, Vincent in Brixton won Britain's Olivier Award for best new play, and a Tony Award nomination for best play on Broadway.
