Presented By Quest Tamworth
Maude (played by 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 (played by 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.
Starring two of Australia’s much loved actors, this play is a tour de force of multi-layered exploration of art and identity.
Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is a comedy set in the present day.
