Inventing van Gogh

Written by Steven Dietz
Directed by Michelle Harmon
Performance Dates: February 4 – 26, 2011

Inventing van Gogh is the story of the final van Gogh self-portrait, painted just before the artist's death, which has never been seen - until now. Patrick Stone, a contemporary painter, is hired to forge this final masterpiece – and finds himself squaring off, across the years, with van Gogh himself. The result is a compelling mystery about the obsession to create and the fine line that separates truth from myth.

Note: Due to an issue in obtaining the rights for Radio Golf, Colonial Players will present the thought-provoking drama Inventing van Gogh as its February production.
