Pegasus Theatre Project presents Bakersfield Mist, a play by Steven Sachs and directed by Peter Bisgaier.
When unemployed bartender, Maude Gutman, comes to believe a painting she bought for $3 in a thrift store is really an undiscovered Jackson Pollock, she thinks she's struck it rich! But when eminent NY art expert, Lionel Percy, arrives at her trailer to evaluate the painting, it results in an afternoon neither one of them ever expected.
Inspired by true events, Stephen Sachs' searing, clever, and often funny drama, Bakersfield Mist, exposes our deepest and darkest perceptions of class, truth, and how we define what's valuable. Don't miss this culture clash that's messier than a Jackson Pollock, but just as thrilling!
