Vincent by Leonard Nimoy presented by Black Sheep Theatre in April 2013

Black Sheep Theatre Presents


By Leonard Nimoy
Directed by Diane Mashia

Featuring Bradley T. Files as “Theo”

Presented in April and July 2013

Based on a play by Phillip Stevens, this fascinating piece tells the story of the life and times of Vincent Van Gogh, as told through the eyes of his younger brother, Theo. We follow Vincent through his early years as a preacher in the coal mining camps of the Borinage in rural Belgium, to his home in Paris where he lived among such artists as Pissarro, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Bernard, and Gaughin, to his home in Auvers, France where he lived and worked until his life ended, tragically cut short.

Originally presented by the Guthrie Theatre, this multi-image dramatic staging received rave reviews when it was toured with the playwright playing the one extraordinary role. The excitement and color of Van Gogh's life and works are artfully woven into the fabric of the play through projection on a large screen, live music, and readings from his many letters.
