    Show Details

    The year is 1873. A young art dealer called Vincent Van Gogh arrives at 87 Hackford Road in Brixton looking for a room and looking for love. As Vincent settles in to his new lodging he finds himself inexplicably drawn to his grieving landlady Ursula with whom he starts a turbulent, secret relationship that will change his life forever.

    Set in a working, authentic kitchen the smells, sights and sounds of life in 87 Hackford Road are brought vividly to life, immersing the audience in a truly extraordinary theatrical experience. The play wrenches home the destructive power of love and art and the sacrifices made by those who create it. It begins as a straight-forward love story, but as the allusions between life at 87 Hackford Road and art intensify, the story turns into a tragic parable about the ruthless flame of art consuming all in its path.
