Maude, a fifty-something 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. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.

Starring Sara Stuart & Greg Jones

In response to overwhelming support for the “STS” project in the spring of 2016, and numerous requests to bring it back, we’re doing just that. As many who have followed her know, noted historian and lecturer Kellee Blake has been given unprecedented access to family histories and documents pertaining to the lives of Eastern Shore women during the Civil War. Ms. Blake has woven together the stories of, among others, wealthy plantation mistresses, a Yankee schoolteacher, enslaved women, a female “ entrepreneur" who turned her home into a profitable “ establishment” for nearby soldiers, and a war widow unused to farming but determined to save her family’s home. And, as for any artist, a “revival” provides opportunity for fresh evaluations.  This season's “STS” promises a few new surprises, a touch more happiness and heartache, and just a little more gossip!
