Artful comedy not to be Mist

Miracles happen, don’t they?  Starring John Wood and Julie Nihill, Bakersfield Mist is a provocative and hilarious look at what makes art – and people – authentic.

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

Maude, an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an op-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 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.

Bakersfield Mist will be performed at Frankston Arts Centre on Tuesday, June 6, at 7.30pm. Tickets are $27-$55. To book, phone 9784 1060 or visit
