Oleanna is a fast-paced play that will make you wonder: how do you talk to someone whose views on life and interpretations of your every word and gesture are so completely different from your own?

why watch oleanna
Things take a turn for the worse when a seemingly innocuous conversation takes place between a college professor and his female student. She files a claim of sexual harassment against him, which leads to spoiling his chances of being accorded tenure. The play by David Mamet, when it first opened nearly 30 years ago, caused a huge uproar amongst its audiences. With its take on political correctness and the use and abuse of language, this is a must-watch show. It is especially interesting to see the play now from the perspective of our #MeToo and Everyone’s Invited era.
When Lucy Bailey’s 2020 staging of Oleanna took place last December it received raving five-star reviews from national critics, who commended the performances of Jonathan Slinger and Rosie Sheehy.
