THE STORY: A down-on-her luck bartender buys a painting for a few bucks at a local thrift store. She’s convinced it’s a lost masterpiece worth millions. When a world-class art expert arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.

“Sachs’ short, clever play is a battle of wits.”
—The New York Times
“It’s exhilarating in the extreme when a play strikes rich on every conceivable level. 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
