Our Review 2 / 5

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.

Our Review of Bakersfield Mist


Appearing like an apparition in a West End otherwise full of transfers from places like Hampstead (Good People), the Almeida (1984 and the upcoming transfer of King George III), the Tricycle (Handbagged) or the National (Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time), Bakersfield Mist is that rare thing: an original play, not based on a film, to originate there without the benefit of a prior subsidised try-out.
