Mosaic Theatre presents Oleanna

From May 18th through June 4th, 2006Oleanna, the play directed by David Mamet continues on stage at Mosaic Theatre until June 4th, 2006. This piece refers to a college student, Carol, who drops by her professor’s office in an effort to gain his help to do better in class. The two discuss the nature of understanding and judgment in society, as well as their very own natures and places in our society. It seems as if a bond has been made. When next they meet is clear that a report has been filed to the tenure committee. Carol has joined a “group” and has decided that John sexually harassed her during their first meeting. Their second meeting dissects the first; every word, every nuance of the first meeting has been twisted into something else. Or has it? John’s unsuccessful attempts to convince Carol to retract her accusation escalate to a more dangerous level. The third meeting climaxes violently leaving John and Carol both physically and emotionally devastated. For more information, please call: 954.577.8243
