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.
• Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
• A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
• Please provide a list of all known conflicts between Mar 21 and May 27, 2018
-) Maude Gutman:
Female, 45-60, an unemployed bartender, rough, raw, had a hard life. Maude has seen her share of struggles and it shows, but she’s a fighter, looking for that one big break.
-) Lionel Percy:
Male, 55-70, an art expert. Elegant and refined, more than a bit arrogant and judgmental. Doesn’t like his opinion questioned, but he too has some skeletons in his closet.
