Mendacity
Written by Sara Farrington // Directed by Reid Farrington // Produced by Foxy Films 

 

Lindsey Graham is Maggie, America is Brick, Trump is Big Daddy, Jared is Big Mama, AOC is SisterWoman in this hyper-transformed riff on Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. With a violent mob outside, Maggie makes a final attempt to seduce Brick, as does dying Big Daddy, bootlicker Big Mama and maniacally millennial SisterWoman. When Brick realizes he’s being lied to by “lying sons of lying bitches,” he destroys himself. Filmed on location at The Connelly Theater in NYC’s East Village, Mendacity compresses the 2020 election, Capitol insurrection and transition of power into a fierce political parable of our time.

Mendacity is an official selection of the NYC Indie Theatre Film Festival, Feb 16-19, 2023. Foxy Films is the recipient of a grant from The New Jersey State Council on the Arts for this piece.
