Directed by Geoff Brittain
The outlines of Wright’s play Vincent in Brixton are rooted in fact. Vincent van Gogh arrived in London in May 1873, aged 20. Not yet an artist, he worked for the Dutch art dealer Goupil in a Covent Garden gallery. He lodged in Brixton, South London with Ursula Loyer and her daughter Eugenie. Vincent’s love for Eugenie is not reciprocated. In imagining the relationships among the play’s characters Wright departs from the official record, which is skimpy in any case. Vincent in Brixton is an absorbing drama that traces the transforming effects of love, sex and youthful adventure on Vincent van Gogh’s still unformed talent, portraying him as he might have been and supposing a poignant affair with his landlady… that may have happened in real life.
Vincent in Brixton stars Nicole Rutty as Ursula Loyer, Alex Whitrow as Vincent van Gogh, Veronika Wlodarczyk as Eugenie Loyer, Gabi Douglas as Anna van Gogh and James Fazzalari as Sam Plowman.
