Bakersfield Mist

A hilarious and thought provoking comedy-drama that asks vital questions about what makes art, and people truly authentic. 
Is the true value of art in the eyes of the beholder? Maude (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 (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.

Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is a comedy set in the present day.

Do not miss the Q & A Session with Aussie acting legends, John Wood and Julie Nihill after the performance.
