Easter Week 3
'You vicious little bitch! You think you can come in here with your political correctness and destroy my life?'
'I don't want revenge. I want UNDERSTANDING!'
An avucular professor; a naive student. An older man; a younger woman. Sounds simple enough, doesn't it? David Mamet's OLEANNA pulls apart the stereotypes of gender and class to reveal two people, trapped together in an office, united only by their mutual hatred... and a longing for understanding. OLEANNA explores whether the sexes can ever really understand each other - and even if they do, do they only really want revenge?
