About this show

A harmless conference between a professor on the verge of tenure and his foundering young female student unexpectedly deteriorates into argument, accusation, and even physical violence. Rapid-fire dialogue steeped in conflicting prejudices, motivations and desires sets in motion an unflinching exploration of sexual harassment, political correctness, and the potentially perilous limitations of our language. A masterwork by one of America's greatest contemporary playwrights, David Mamet's Oleanna is sure to prompt debate, if not easy answers.
