    Oleanna tickets

    Mamet's controversial and daring campus drama

    Playwright David Mamet’s no-holds-barred take on campus sexual harassment, Oleanna, transfers to the West End, following an acclaimed revival at Theatre Royal Bath.

    Set on an American college campus, Oleanna follows the fallout of a conversation between a professor and his student, after she files a claim of sexual harassment. First premiering in 1992, the controversial but celebrated play remains fiercely relevant as conversations about abuse of power continue to grow.

    David Mamet is well-known for his sharp, bold writing on both stage and screen, including Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed The Plow. His latest West End production, Bitter Wheat starring John Malkovich, turned an eye on the entertainment industry’s #MeToo reckoning.

    Jonathan Slinger and Rosie Sheehy reprise their roles for the London transfer, with direction from Lucy Bailey (Globe Theatre: Titus Andronicus).

    Sure to be a provocative conversation-starter, Oleanna tickets promise a challenging, confrontational theatre experience.

    Brilliant performed, timely story. Honestly I think the less you know about this show the more impactful it will be. Although do be aware it contains moments of violence and discussion of sexual abuse.

    Found the start irritating with the constant interruptions between the two characters, but soon became absorbed in the dialogue when this eased off. Very interesting to follow the original discussions and physical interplay and then to see how this can be twisted and interpreted differently from each character’s viewpoint. Stunning performances from both actors, though I thought Rosie Sheehy looked genuinely emotionally traumatised by her performance at the end. No smile at curtain call, but a look of shock and real tears -I’d be worried about her. Reminded me of seeing Suranne Jones in Frozen just before she withdrew from the production because of the emotional toll it took on her.

    This is a very tough one to watch but is superbly acted. A two hander play about a university professor whose student alleges that he sexually harrassed her. The power struggles played in this are very interesting and the writing is excellent. A controversial piece, but worth seeing

    Really interesting play and lots to take away and discuss. I preferred the later half, as it was a little slow going to begin with. Acting was superb!
