I am very excited to see this...
THE LYING LESSON by CRAIG LUCASdirected by PAM MACKINNON World Premiere Linda Gross Theater, 336 W 20th St.
In a remote seaside village in Maine, legendary film star Bette Davis (Carol Kane) shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple. When she encounters a young local woman (Mickey Sumner) who appears never to have heard of her, “Ruth” 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 comic thriller, Craig Lucas, celebrated author of Prelude to a Kiss, Reckless and The Light in the Piazza twists and turns the audience around essential questions about memory, identity and truth-telling.
