July 5-14

Bakersfield Mist by Stephen Sachs

Produced by the Community Players of Concord.

A one-act, 90-minute play inspired by the true story of a California woman who bought a painting for a few dollars in a thrift shop and thought it could possibly be a lost Jackson Pollock masterpiece worth millions,  Bakersfield Mist introduces us to two characters at either end of the social spectrum: Maude Gutman, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park who finds the painting, and Lionel Percy, a New York-based art expert who takes one look at the painting and offers his assessment. His opinion – and Maude’s reaction to it – propels the play into not only becoming familiar with the characters and their past, but on a conversation on art and how it affects all of us on intimately personal levels. In the end, the question of whether or not the painting is a Pollock becomes incidental, as Bakersfield Mist takes us not only on a lively, fast-paced, comedic and touching examination of these two characters, but also on the nature of art itself.

Join the Community Players of Concord NH's in opening their 92nd Season with Bakersfield Mist, directed by Vicky Sandin. Two characters, two social spectrums, one examination of life and art. Lively, fast-paced, comedic and touching.
