C.O.A.L. (Confessions of a Liar), an award winning play by David Brian Colbert and produced by Mary J. Davis and
MBL Productions opened at 59E59 Theaters on Wednesday Mary 11, 2015. The play directed by Craig Baldwin delves into the lies we tell ourselves and others, the lies we tell just to make it through the day. Coal, a singular character, is portrayed by four actors taking on the colorful roles of Man, Woman, Girl, and Boy played respectively by David Brian Colbert, Lisa Bostnar, Mirirai Sithold, and Jackson Tanner. Coal is a charming liar who revisits his life in a small West Virginia town attempting to come to terms with the lies he has told to change the truth.
The design team includes Craig Baldwin (set design); Cory Pattak (lighting design); Elizabeth Caruso (costume design); and Luke Norby (projection design). The stage manager is Katie Kavett.
