Oleanna, a masterpiece by David Mammet, has returned to the West End after a 2004 showing at the Garrick Theatre. The show is born out of the Everyone’s Invited and #MeToo era and is available for a limited time at the Arts Theatre. It was also adapted into a movie that was directed by Mamet himself.
Set on an American campus, watch how a seemingly innocuous dialogue between a female student and her professor turns out so dark. Watch the complicated emotions going through both the character’s mind and an unexpected twist in the end that brings the show home.
Directed by the talented Lucy Baily, the production is starring Jonathan Slinger and Rosie Sheehy. With a talented team, the show is without a doubt brilliant and packed with impressive performances. Mamet’s play’s focus was on the extreme political correctness and exploring the use and abuse of language that can be seen in this latest revival.
Oleanna is a #MeToo era drama that explores how a simple conversation between a female student and her professor can destroy them both. The play starts with Carol, a college student, who is upset at not understanding the material that John, her professor teaches in the class. To help, he agrees to grant her an ‘A’ if she accepts to discuss the material with him in his office.
A seemingly innocent conversation turns into a disaster when Carol files a sexual harassment complaint against John. This affects his tenure and his family life. When pushed further, he finally breaks and sets out doing one thing that he was trying to avoid all along.
