Oleanna - by David Mamet

David Mamet’s enduring, divisive drama

Man.

Woman.

Power.

Carol, a college student, visits her professor, John, in his office for help in his class. The two discuss the nature their natures and places in society, and a bond appears to have been made. When next they meet, Carol has filed a report against John to the tenure committee that he sexually harassed her. 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 dangerous level. A third, ill-advised meeting climaxes violently, leaving both physically and emotionally devastated.

New Orleans veteran actor and adjunct professor, John Neisler makes his directorial debut with Ashton Akridge in the role of Carol and James Yeargain as John.
