About the Show:
“Oleanna”, a powerful two-character drama by David Mamet, explores the destructiveness of miscommunication and excessive political correctness. It’s a play about academic politics, student/teacher relationships and sexual harassment.
Carol, a female college student, meets privately with her male professor. She is concerned about failing the class. She is frustrated because she doesn’t understand the professor’s overly verbose lectures.
At first, the professor (John) is callous with her, but when she explains that she feels incompetent, he expresses empathy for her. He “likes her” so he bends the rules and decides to give her an “A” if she agrees to meet with him to discuss the material, one-on-one.
Performances — January 13 – 29, 2023.
