Directed by Dawn Knipe

Maude, an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from the thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert, Lionel Percy, flies in from New York and arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this sparkling and colorful new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.


Maude Gutman - 40-60, female

A colorful, saucy wise-cracking trailer trash woman. Salt-of-the-earth, takes grief from no one, big hearted, an eccentric and passionate dreamer. Beneath her bold and hopeful exterior lies a wounded heart and damaged soul.


Lionel Percy 50 - 70, male

Manhattan art expert, suave, elegant, refined, rich, highly-educated and a bit of a snob. Former Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, now struggling through a life crisis and a painful divorce.

Auditions will consist of reading selections from the script.
