In this world premiere production, a woman who may or may not be legendary movie star Bette Davis shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple in a remote seaside village in Maine. Escorted by a young local woman who appears never to have heard of her, “Ruth” (Carol Kane) 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, playwright Craig Lucas twists and turns the audience around essential questions about memory, identity, and truth-telling in The Lying Lesson.
