Bakersfield Mist at Duchess Theatre from 10th May 2014

Inspired by true events, this dazzling new comedy by Stephen Sachs asks what makes art and people truly authentic? BAKERSFIELD MIST marks the return to the London stage of Kathleen Turner, for the first time since her award-winning tour-de-force performance in Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? She will play opposite Olivier and Tony Award winner Ian McDiarmid (Life of Galileo, Faith Healer) directed by Evening Standard award-winner, Polly Teale.

Maude has bought a painting for a few bucks from the thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock, in fact she’s certain it is. But when world-class art expert, Lionel Percy, arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, the pair engage in a verbal punch-up and do more than just talk art.
