Oil outlines the depletion of a natural resource over the course of three centuries. The mother-daughter duo, May and Amy, travel through time from 1889 to 2051. As they hop between Tehran, London, and Baghdad, they witness the human cost of the oil industry. This intimate epic critiques the exploitation of oil through an anti-colonial feminist lens.

A violent, political tragedy written in the last few years of Shakespeare’s life, Coriolanus explores the tension between military force and popular rule. It follows the downfall of the decorated soldier, Coriolanus, who is banished from Rome due to his disdain of the common people. Enraged, he does the unthinkable and returns to wage war against the very people he had sworn to protect.
