On stage at King’s Theatre August 16 & 17 at 7:30pm and August 18 at 3:00pm A hilarious and poignant play first staged on the West End in London with Kathleen Turner and Ian McDermid, now performed worldwide. The Story: Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it’s a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions.

But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.

The Playwright: Stephen Sachs is an award-winning playwright, director and producer. He is the Founding Artistic Director of the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles.

TICKETS: Adults $25/ Youth $20 Please note: This play contains some course language and suicidal ideation.
