Each work presented in the festival represents one of the five cannons of rhetoric: style, arrangement, memory, delivery and invention. C.O.A.L. represents the cannon of style.
Here's how it's billed: "C.O.A.L. (confessions of a liar) takes us on a journey through the mind and life of a confessed sociopath known to us only as Coal. Coal, a disenfranchised survivor of abuse comes to terms with the steps he took to escape his lot and change his truth, in a small, small town and brings to light the questions, 'What is the truth in a society built on little white lies?' 'At what lengths will one go to change the truth?' 'Does the truth even matter?' Well...Does it?"
