PLAYWRIGHT: Stephen Sachs
STARRING: John Wood and Julie Nihill
Is the true value of art in the eye of the beholder? Maude (Julie Nihill ), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an opportunity shop. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth millions of dollars. 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. Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is a comedy play set in the present day.
On the international production of Bakersfield Mist – "Inspired by true events, this sparkling and colourful new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic." The Telegraph
