Genre: Drama
by David Mamet and directed by Timothy J. Amrhein

Oleanna is a two-character play about the power struggle between a university professor and one of his female students who accuses him of sexual harassment and, by doing so, spoils his chances of being accorded tenure. The play's title, taken from a folk song, refers to a 19th-century escapist vision of utopia. This show is for mature audiences only. Previews begin November 19 at 4PM, with performances running November 20 at 6PM and November 21 at 4PM and 8PM. This production stars Solomon Peck as John and Adrianna Riolo as Carol.
