Blue Lane presents:
Oleanna is a two-character play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet, about the power struggle between a university professor and one of his female students; a modern great that is as divisive as it is slick.
Written in Mamet's trademark style the dialogue is marked by a cynical, street-smart edge. As Pinter notes in personal correspondence to Mamet, “There can be no tougher or more unflinching play than Oleanna.”
Funny, thought provoking and eventually heartfelt, no other play has had such differing opinions forced on it than this masterpiece.
Mamet’s Oleanna has seen many stage reincarnations across the globe starting at the Royal Court Theatre in 1993 and completing sixty five performances on Broadway.
