Bakersfield Mist
"She bought a painting for three bucks in a junk store. But what's it really worth?"

Director Amir Korangy directs seasoned stage actors Diane Cary and John Mawson in this tense, funny play.

Review in the Tolucan Times, 20th July 2019:

"Bakersfield Mist at Beverly Hills Playhouse is classic conversation piece theatertwo people, one issue, and 72 minutes of engaging, soul searching conflict. ...Amir Korangys fascinating production of playwright Stephen Sachs play brilliantly explores the subject of value in art and the perspective from which a person values a thing or person. Is ones perspective defined by ones class upbringing, education or something else not easily defined?"

"Diane Carys Maude is a thoroughly designed character. The work is centered and dynamic. She grounds the production with organic behavior and sincere heart... John Mawson does an excellent job of embodying the superior Lionel Percy while at the same time revealing the mans humanity and desperation.

With a brilliant set and light designsimple but detailed-Korangy keeps our attention beautifully, maintaining a wonderful sense of movement between the two characters.

Bakersfield Mist is an engaging and well done piece of theatre."

Other reviews of the play.

Funny! Thought-provoking! A hit around the world! "It's exhilirating in the extreme when a play strikes rich on every conceivable level. Such is the case with Stephen Sachs' Bakersfield Mist. A wry two-hander that handles highbrow artistic issues while zinging in plenty of uproarious one-liners. A perfect marriage of emotion and ideas that is rare indeed. Los Angeles Times

Not to be missed! Bakersfield Mist tackles large creative questions with well-timed zingers.Vanity Fair.
