About this show

In a remote seaside village in Maine, legendary film star Bette Davis (Carol Kane) shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple. Escorted by a young local woman who appears never to have heard of her, "Ruth" (Davis' alias) stakes a claim on her distant past, and plays a relentless game of cat and mouse with her new "assistant." In this hilarious and unsettling new play, Craig Lucas twists and turns the audience around essential questions about memory, identity, and truth-telling in THE LYING LESSON.
