Set on an American campus, a seemingly innocuous conversation between a college professor and his female student warps into a nightmare which threatens to destroy them both, when she files a claim of sexual harassment against him. With its take on the corrosive excesses of political correctness and exploration of the use and abuse of language, this is the ultimate drama of pupil power and student revenge.
A brilliant revival of a masterpiece…this is theatre at its most riveting, sensationally performed by its actors’ – The Guardian
David Mamet’s masterpiece about political correctness and campus sexual harassment returns to the West End, reborn for the #MeToo and Everyone’s Invited era.
Oleanna is at the Arts Theatre from July 2021. Oleanna last ran in the West End at the Garrick Theatre in 2004, starring Julia Stiles and Aaron Eckhart.
