Lily Mooney is a writer and performer based in Chicago. She is an ensemble member of The Neo-Futurists, where for four years she wrote and performed in the long-running show Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind. Now she writes, directs, and performs in the company's new late-night play machine, The Infinite Wrench. She also co-creates and produces The Arrow, a quarterly neo-futurist storytelling show that collides prose, plays, and improvisation. In all their work, the Neo-Futurists insist on an aesthetic of direct honesty and "truth on stage"; at WE, Lily will perform a new piece she wrote called Empty, in which she will tell a mess of lies to the audience, and then attempt in earnest to clean that mess up.
