WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Since its premiere in 1992, David Mamet's provocative Oleanna has polarized audiences on Broadway, in the West End and around the world. Written at the time of the birth of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Confirmation Hearings that divided the nation, Oleanna begins with an unconventional university professor, John, trying to assist a struggling female student, Carol, who has come to him for help. The encounter soon sours. As opinions collide an epic power struggle is born, crashing ideals of sexual empowerment and free speech with invasive political correctness. The result is explosive.
