Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she's now convinced it's a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.

Blair Leatherwood and Julie AnchorTwo well-known Sacramento actors, Julie Anchor and Blair Leatherwood, play Maude and Lionel in the two-person show.

"I Never Saw Another Butterfly"

By Celeste Raspanti
October 11 - November 10
Directed by Michele Koehler
The play centers on Raja Englanderova, one of the children who survived Terezin, a World War II Nazi concentration camp. We meet Raja's family, friends, and classmates, as she shares her story of living in the camp, while retaining a world filled with butterflies and flowers. The text is based on a book of poetry and drawings made by the Jewish children at Terezin, and was adapted by Celeste Raspanti from her book of the same name.
