Jonathan Slinger and Rosie Sheehy in
By David Mamet
Directed by Lucy Bailey
‘Rosie Sheehy... this year’s stand out performance’
‘Oleanna looks like the show of the year... Jonathan Slinger is magnificent’
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.
Addressing issues which are strikingly current, this is a fascinating opportunity to see this landmark play from the perspective of our #MeToo era.
