'The Lying Lesson' opens off-Broadway March 13.

Craig Lucas’ The Lying Lesson, starring Emmy winner Carol Kane and up-and-coming actress Mickey Sumner, officially opens at the Atlantic Theater Company Mainstage on March 13. Directed by Tony nominee Pam MacKinnon, The Lying Lesson runs through March 31.

In a remote seaside village in Maine, legendary film star Bette Davis (Kane) shows up to buy the home of an elderly couple. When she encounters a young local woman (Sumner) who appears never to have heard of her, “Ruth Elizabeth” stakes a claim on her distant past and plays a relentless game of cat and mouse with her new “assistant.”

In honor of the opening, check out a classic Bette Davis movie moment from All About Eve!.
