In Empty Threats, writer-performer Lily Mooney presents a send up of power dynamics found in contemporary theater and in modern life. The show begins with a fictional premise: Victor, a college professor, prepares to leave his office at the end of a long day. Soon the play’s author, a “real person,” barges in and stages an interrogation, forcing Victor to defend his fictional existence. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and David Mamet’s Oleanna serve as springboards for this complex, comedic and vigorous investigation of truth and responsibility.
