What seems to be an innocuous conversation between a female student and her college professor on an American campus suddenly warps into a nightmare that threatens to destroy them both, after she makes a sexual harassment claim against him. Oleanna is a powerful play that delves into the corrosive excesses of political correctness and where the exploration of both the use and abuse of language can lead to a terrifying tale of pupil power and student revenge.
David Mamet’s masterpiece returns to the West End at the Arts Theatre, now reborn for the #MeToo and "Everyone’s Invited" era.
