Hollywood actress Julia Stiles makes her West End debut, alongside Aaron Eckhart, in Oleanna - a drama by David Mamet about a college professor accused of sexual harassment by a troubled student...
A chilling, provocative and incisive drama from Pulitzer Prize winning David Mamet, OLEANNA dissects the controversial issue of sexual harassment from every emotionally charged side of the equation.
When a college Professor agrees to meet a struggling student behind closed doors, their conversation yields only mutual misunderstanding...and an unexpected charge.
As their antipathy turns ugly, it destroys lives, derails careers and ultimately leads to a cataclysmic event that no one could have expected.
The play has already enjoyed one successful West End run when it was directed by Harold Pinter in 1993 at the Royal Court, starring Lia Williams and David Suchet. A film followed in 1994 featuring Debra Eisenstadt and Fargo's William H Macy.
