Stage Rats perform next play on lawn

SARANAC LAKE — With theaters still closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Adirondack Stage Rats are taking it to the grass.

The lawn of 94 Forest Hill Ave., Saranac Lake, will be the stage as Leslie Dame and Jordan Hornstein star in “Bakersfield Mist,” a two-person, socially distanced “dramedy” directed by Beth Glover.

Here’s the premise: Maude Gutman has enlisted the aid of renowned art expert Lionel Percy to prove the painting she bought at a junk shop is a genuine Jackson Pollock.

The play’s five outdoor performances will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27; Saturday, Oct. 3; Sunday, Oct. 4; Saturday, Oct. 10 and Sunday, Oct. 11. Fifteen to 20 people will be allowed to watch each one.

To reserve, email adkstagerats@gmail.com and give the number of reservations, preferred date and phone number.

There is no set ticket price; attendees are asked to donate “as the spirit moves you.”

Attendees must bring their own lawn chairs, wear masks, dress warmly and be prepared for Maude Gutman’s salty language.
