by Kate Cayley (Tarragon Theatre). An artist must prove that he forged a Vermeer painting he tried to sell in WWII-era Holland. Previews Oct 21-28. Opens Oct 29 and runs to Nov 30, Tue-Sat 8 pm, Sat-Sun 2:30 pm. $21-$53, rush $15.
A forger in postwar Amsterdam who sold a Vermeer to the Nazis faces a death sentence unless he can prove he painted the work himself. When his judge, an art historian, becomes the subject of his next picture, they both must deal with issues of guilt, mercy and forgiveness in this subtle, finely acted drama.
