Four Cut Sunflowers: Van Gogh, stock image
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 Johanna, who single-handedly ensured Vincent Van Gogh’s success. An exploration of grief, desire, guilt, and duty, which illuminates the woman previously left in the artist’s shadow.
A new play by student Manon Harvey. Directed by Elizabeth Laurence (English BA, Trinity College, 2020) and James Critchley (English BA, Trinity College, 2020). Produced by Martha French (English MPhil, 2022; English BA, Pembroke College, 2019).
