Cheap Bakersfield Mist tickets at the Duchess Theatre
Bakersfield Mist marks the return to the London stage of multi award-winner Kathleen Turner for the first time since her tour-de-force performance in Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.
She performs opposite Olivier and Tony award-winner Ian McDiarmid (Life of Galileo, Faith Healer) directed by Evening Standard award-winner, Polly Teale.
Inspired by true events, this new play by Stephen Sachs asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic. It's the story of Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender, who's bought a painting for a few bucks from the thrift store.
Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth millions. In fact she’s certain it is. But when world-class art expert, Lionel Percy, flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he really has no idea what he is about to discover.

Duchess Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Duchess Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Duchess Theatre is situated on Catherine Street near Aldwych in the West End of London, close to Covent Garden tube station. Built in 1929, this 475 seat venue had to be built mostly underground in order not to obstruct the passage of natural light into its neighbouring buildings.
The first production at the Duchess Theatre was Tunnel Trench by Hubert Griffith, which opened on November 25 1929. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, Alfie, The Dirtiest Show in Town, Oh! Calcutta and The Herbal Bed.
Today, the Duchess Theatre enjoys consistent success and is known for housing limited run seasons of plays and musicals or small touring shows. Being a reasonably small playhouse it allows for an intimate environment in which to view live theatre.
Although the theatre is over 80 years old the original grid, flies, iron curtain and hardwood stage are all still in use and in working order. So as not to affect the ‘ancient light,’ a problem of great importance during construction, most of the theatre is below ground level, with the front of the circle in line with the street. Patrons enjoy unobstructed views at this theatre because the circle is suspended from the roof.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Duchess Theatre make it the perfect place to see intimate shows ranging from dramatic works through musicals to stand-up comedy performances. Recent successes include George Gershwin Alone, Man And Boy, The Birthday Party, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, Plague over England, Butley, Ruby Wax Loses It and The Hurly Burly Show.
Whatever you decide to see at the Duchess Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
