Further Information
Maude (Julie Nihill), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an op shop. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock original and worth millions. In fact she’s certain it is. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy (John Wood) flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he really has no idea what he’s about to discover.
Inspired by true events and written by playwright Stephen Sachs, Bakersfield Mist is a comedic drama that asks the question, is the true value of art in the eyes of the beholder?
Reviews of international performances
“A thoroughly entertaining 85 minutes of quipping, arguing, boozing, opining, fist-fighting and soul-baring” - The Times
“An intellectual show full of shadings” - Daily Mail
