John is a professor about to acquire tenure, he’s married, he has a family, he wrote a book, and he’s buying a new house.  Carol is a student who worked hard and made sacrifices to attend a good university that would advance her station in life.  Both are terrified that they will fail and lose it all.  One day, they meet in John’s office, and neither will ever be the same.

Staged during the aftermath of the Anita Hill hearings, David Mamet’s 1992 Oleanna electrified and enraged audiences, producing countless accounts of outbursts during, and arguments after, the play. Described as “a buzz saw of gender, sex, and power” (David Marcus, The Federalist), Oleanna takes on new life in the #metoo movement. While often described as a commentary on sexual harassment and political correctness, Oleanna is a play about what happens when we stop listening to each other and forget that we are all human.
