A comedy/mystery by Stephen Sachs
Directed By Gene Davis
This play was inspired by true events that eventually was the subject of a documentary by 60 Minutes. Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, buys a painting for 5$ at a thrift store. The local art teacher sees it and thinks it could be a lost abstract masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. After careful research, eventually the International Foundation for Art Research gets involved and sends out its expert Lionel Percy to authenticate the painting. Lionel and Maude tangle from the outset in this classic culture clash over who defines what art is and what determines its worth. The play stars CTG veterans Aaron Odom as Lionel and Erin Kranz as Maude.
Performance dates are Jan. 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29 and Feb. 2, 3 and 4. Thurs to Saturday performances at 7:30 and Sunday matinees at 2:00. Tickets are available at Wyo Box office or WyoTheater.com or Carriage House one hour before the performance.
This play is rated MA for mature audiences due to adult language.
