About the Play
Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin share a tumultuous nine weeks living together in the south of France, culminating in van Gogh cutting off his own ear. Meanwhile, the spirits of Jack the Ripper's victims are looking for a way to express their anger and confusion at their fate. When these women's spirits begin to intertwine with the artists' lives, violence and art collide.
