The scene is simple: Two chairs and a table, a baguette in a country basket, a bottle of peasant wine, two glasses, a corncob pipe. We are in a café in Auvers, France. The year is 1890. Joseph Roulin, the Postman, comes forward and sits in one of the chairs. For the next hour, the Postman captures the spirit of van Gogh the man and the essence of van Gogh the artist. The Postman, written and embodied by Ted Zalewski through extensive research into van Gogh’s life and letters, is filled with humor, passion, and joie de vivre.
