The Art Couple
About The Art Couple
In this absurdist comedy, playwright Neil Simon is desperately seeking inspiration. He finds it in the real-life odd couple story of Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin’s ill-fated co-habitation in the south of France. Filled with “gut-punching poignancy” (Stage Raw), this strikingly clever new play explores the lives and work of struggling artists before they become famous — or lose an ear. As Paul and Vincent argue about art and Neil wrestles with his narrative, "The Art Couple" offers a hilarious look at the world of art, the price of genius, and the difficulty of having a roommate.
