Co-produced by the Berkshire Theatre Group and WAM Theatre, ‘The Bakelite Masterpiece’ by Kate Cayley is about the artist Han van Meegeren who has been arrested for selling a long-lost painting by the Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer to Hermann Goering, Nazi leader. His defense? It was a perfect forgery painted by him. His proof? In front of his prosecutor (art historian and resistance fighter) Geert Piller, he must paint another flawless Vermeer to save his life.
