Internationally recognized stage and screen star Kathleen Turner headlines the new West End production of BAKERSFIELD MIST and a sneak peek at the acclaimed actress in action onstage is now available to view.

Turner stars alongside notable British actor Ian McDiarmid in the West End premiere of the comedy by Stephen Sachs, which premiered in Los Angeles in 2011.

In a recent interview, Turner described her character in BAKERSFIELD MIST as such: “This blousy woman, a little rundown – the kind of cliche of an American woman you Brits just love – but there’s more to her. It’s about the transformative power of art and class and truth.”

Furthermore, the character is named Maude Gutman and is described as “an unemployed bartender who buys an abstract painting for $3 and discovers it could be a priceless Jackson Pollock piece.”

BAKERSFIELD MIST is scheduled to play at the Duchess Theatre from May 10 to August 30, 2014.
