The Drama Factory presents Vincent – his quest to love and be loved, back by popular demand.

“70 million are bid, 73, 75 Million dollars! Sir?, I shall then sell it at 75million dollars. Thank you, sir.”

Towards the end of his short life, Vincent Van Gogh, who suffered from mental illness, was treated by Doctor Paul Gachet.

Vincent 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 Gauchet was sold, within three minutes, for 75 million dollars.

Vincent – his quest to love and be loved, a multimedia cabaret, tells of a complex man with a ruthless drive to create and a deep-seated desire to love and be loved.

The show tells of the artist’s search for love, told through reimagined versions of popular musical theatre, pop, rock and jazz numbers, and award-winning duo Daniel Anderson and Tersia Harley mesmerise the audience.

The shows take place on Friday September 22, at 7.30pm, Saturday September 23, at 4pm, and Sunday September 24, at 4pm.

Tickets cost between R140 and R170, and are available at www.thedramafactory.co.za, and for more information, call 073 215 2290.
