About Oleanna

Named one of Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Plays,” "Oleanna" is a seething investigation of sexual harassment, political correctness, and the irreconcilable differences between men and women. Pulitzer Prize-Winner David Mamet pulls us into a provocative power struggle where “he said, she said” reaches deeply personal and explosive levels. This two-person story focuses on a university professor and his student as they view their out-of-class meetings from two drastically different perspectives. The audience will be challenged to decide what it means to be right or wrong in the midst of individual interpretations. This drama shines a spotlight on gender politics, privilege, status and power. "Oleanna" may provoke more arguments than any play you will see this year.
