Maude Gutman, an unemployed bartender, lives in a trailer park and has purchased a painting for $3.00 at a thrift store that she believes to be an unknown painting by the great Jackson Pollock. She hires an art expert to verify the painting. Lionel Percy, a stuffy New York arts expert and a self-described connoisseur, goes to Bakersfield, California, to render his verdict as to whether Maude has a Pollock or a fake. This smash-hit comedy premiered in London in 2016 and has already had several productions across the United States.
