Fasten your seatbelts—it's going to be a bumpy night. Craig Lucas’ Bette Davis comedy The Lying Lesson begins performances at Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theater on February 20. Directed by Pam MacKinnon, the off-Broadway production stars Emmy nominee Carol Kane and newcomer Mickey Sumner. The play officially opens March 13 and runs through March 31.

The Lying Lesson takes place in a remote seaside village in Maine where a woman who may or may not be legendary movie star Bette Davis (Kane) shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple. Escorted by a young local woman (Sumner), “Ruth” stakes a claim on her distant past, and plays a relentless game of cat and mouse with her new “assistant.”

The production features set design by Neil Patel, costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Russell H. Champa and original music and sound design by Broken Chord.

In honor of the Bette Davis-centric comedy, check out a YouTube montage of Davis' iconic screen moments below!
