By depicting a power struggle between two self-absorbed individuals with differing viewpoints, the play makes a statement about the ambiguity surrounding sexual harassment and how perception of reality is often filtered through one’s experiences. This powerful drama explores the destructiveness of miscommunication and the confronts the reality of gender dynamics in the #MeToo era.

 

"A seething investigation of "political correctness" in a time when the nation's morality has been tested by increased incidents of sexual harassment. OLEANNA is likely to provoke more arguments than any play this year." —NY Times

"... stimulating and speculative subject matter; making it stay with you long after curtain call." - Broadway World

"... challenging, compelling, and ... uncomfortably relevant." - Broadstreetreview.com
