When Carol, an undergraduate at a prestigious college fears failing a course, she seeks the help of her professor, John. John bends the rules and decides to give her an “A” if she agrees to meet with him privately. This powerful drama explores the destructiveness of miscommunication and confronts the reality of sexual harassment 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
