Curious Theatre Company presents the regional premiere of Inventing van Gogh. Denver-born playwright Steven Dietz collides our contemporary world with Van Gogh’s 19th Century in a play about love, obsessions, and the act of artistic creation. A haunting and hallucinatory drama about the making of art, the play is the story of the final van Gogh self-portrait, painted just before the author’s death, which has never been seen. . .until now. 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.
