Vincent van Gogh is perhaps one of the most famous artists in all the world, however the Dutch painter only found acclaim after his death.

During his tumultuous life Vincent exchanged over 600 letters with his beloved brother Theo, whose wife, Jo Bogner Van-Gogh, compiled and had them published in 1914, raising the pair to prominence they never experienced in life.

These intimate windows into Vincent’s life and their relationship are now adapted for the stage in Starry.
