One of the most controversial and famous plays of the last thirty years returns to the West End.
Oleanna, a two-character play by David Mamet from 1992, is about the power struggle between a university professor and one of his female students, who accuses him of sexual harassment and thus destroys his chances of being granted a term of office.
The show last had a London production in 2004.
For revival in 2021, it will be performed at the London Art’s Theater, just around the corner from Leicester Square Underground Station, and will run until 23 October.
The production plays Rosie Sheehy and Jonathan Slinger as Carol and John respectively. Sheehy’s TV credits include BBC’s Call The Midwife and HBO’s Chernobyl. Her theater credits include RSC’s King John and Anna X at The Vaults. Slinger’s film credits include A Knight’s Tale and The Salisbury Poisonings. He has extensive theater credits, having worked at the Royal National Theater, Shakespeare’s Globe and with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The current production is directed by Lucy Bailey, best known for Baby Doll at the National Theater and Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution at London County Hall.
