Is the true value of art in the eyes of the beholder? Maude (Julie Nihill), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an opp shop. 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 (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 set in the present day.
The Tasmanian Theatre Company and Straightjacket Productions in association with The Karralyka Centre brings Bakersfield Mist to Geelong as part of GPAC’s 2017 Deakin University Theatre Season.
“Inspired by true events, this sparkling and colourful new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic” – The Telegraph
