The ultimate he-said, she-said drama

The New York Times

Why See Oleanna?

A female student and her male professor engage in a battle for power and control. This revival of David Mamet's controversial 1992 play stars Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles.

OLEANNA is Pulitzer Prize winner DAVID MAMET's most controversial drama. This gripping new production, directed by Tony winner DOUG HUGHES, had Los Angeles audiences gasping and critics raving. Now this landmark play comes to Broadway - for the first time ever - with the crackle and force of wildfire.

OLEANNA has electrifying dialogue, blazing emotion and an ending that will leave you talking for weeks. In this riveting drama, a college professor and his female student become embroiled in a war of words that takes a dangerous turn. As their serene campus transforms into a battleground for justice, Mamet's explosive masterpiece dares you to take a side . . . if you can.
