Poor Maude! Living in a trailer park, fired from her bartending job… even her best friend refused to accept the ugly painting she bought at a thrift store for her birthday. But today might be Maude's lucky day: turns out that five-dollar painting might just be a lost Jackson Pollock. Her fate lies in the hands of Lionel Percy, former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who shows up at Maude's trailer to determine its authenticity. What follows is a collision of class and culture, where the "average Joe" might finally have a chance to throw it in the face of those snooty "coastal elites". Sachs based his play on true events, but the comedy is of his own making.
