Maude Gutman, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park in the California desert, believes the painting she bought in a thrift store for three dollars as a gag gift is really an undiscovered Jackson Pollock worth millions. Is this the find of the century or a clever forgery? When eminent New York art historian and expert Lionel Percy arrives at Maude’s trailer to evaluate the painting, the two embark on a fiery debate over class, truth, and what we personally perceive as valuable. Inspired by true events, Bakersfield Mist is a lively and delightful comedy about the meaning of art.
“It’s exhilarating in the extreme when a world premiere play strikes rich on every conceivable level.” – The Los Angeles Times on Bakersfield Mist
