Bakersfield MistKathleen Turner, who famously bared all when she last appeared in the West End - in a stage adaptation of The Graduate fourteen years ago - returns to the London stage to play Maude, an unemployed bartender, in the European premiere of Stephen Sachs's comedy-drama Bakersfield Mist, at the Duchess Theatre. Maude has bought a painting from a thrift shop, and despite nearly destroying it, she believes it maybe a Jackson Pollock. An art expert, played by Ian McDiarmid, arrives in Bakersfield to authenticate it, but has no idea what he is about to truly discover. Producer Nica Burns told BBC News, "the chemistry between these two great stage actors was thrilling" at an early read through of the play.

 

About Duchess Theatre

The Duchess Theatre is one of the smallest in The West End, which is not entirely a bad thing. The seating is almost on top of the stage, creating an intense engagement between audience and actors of the kind usually reserved for the fringe. More about Duchess Theatre
