The Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College presents a reading of "The Master Forger", by David Wiener as part of First Throws, the theater’s unique playwriting salon that presents new plays exploring issues of justice from an artistic perspective, on Monday, September 27, 2010 at 7pm at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 899 Tenth Avenue, NYC. Admission is FREE and no tickets are required.
"The Master Forger" tells the true story of the ingenious Dutch art forger Han van Meegeren. Taking place in the shattered city of Amsterdam after World War II, van Meegeren is arrested for selling a priceless Vermeer to the Nazis and charged with treason. But the investigation takes a bizarre turn when van Meegeren claims that the Vermeer in question is his own forgery. The authorities challenge him to prove his ridiculous claim or face the gallows. Now, the master forger must create his own greatest fake – or die. "The Master Forger" is directed by Susan Einhorn and the cast of six features David Little as Han van Meegeren.
