David Mamet's OLEANNA
In the wake of Harvey Weinstein and the #metoo movement, theatre penumbra is proud to present David Mamet's challenging and timely play, Oleanna. In the hands of director Allegra Fulton, an award-winning actress and one of Canadas most celebrated artists, this production promises to be an intimate, and cutting-edge retelling of this classic work.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Oleannas premiere, but the questions and conflict raised by the play are more relevant today than ever before.Oleanna is a seething investigation of power, political correctness and sexual harassment. Mamets dual-character play focuses on Carol, a student and John, her professor. Over the course of three encounters, Mamet begs the audience to question what it means to be right or wrong.
