BY TASMANIAN THEATRE COMPANY & STRAIGHTJACKET PRODUCTIONS, IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE KARRALYKA CENTRE
Colourful comedy/drama inspired by real events
Written by Stephen Sachs 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 thoroughly entertaining.
“….great fun, and there’s a natural odd-couple rapport between the two that powers Bakersfield Mist….on the more earnest side, Sach’s does manage to make quite a decent point about the subjectivity of value judgement, in both art and class” Time Out
