Back Bakersfield Mist

10 May – 30 August 2014

The Duchess Theatre

Kathleen Turner and Ian McDiarmid will star in new play, Bakersfield Mist by Stephen Sachs, directed by Polly Teale.

Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from the thrift store.   Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth millions.  In fact she’s certain it is.  But when world-class art expert, Lionel Percy, 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 is about to discover.
