Bakersfield Mist


by Stephen Sachs

Directed by Brad Lowry Maude

Bakersfield Mist tells the story of a fifty-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, who has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store.

Despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it’s a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions.

But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.

Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.

A one act emotional roller coaster which is bound to be enjoyed by all.
