12-13 Jul. Vincent at the Guild Theatre from 7.30pm. 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. Tickets available from Computicket at R200 for adults and R180 for students and pensioners.
