London Oleanna tickets for the Arts Theatre run are available now!
David Mamet’s masterpiece is coming to the London’s Arts Theatre from 21 July to 23 October 2021. The brilliant revival returns to the West End for the first time since 2004 at the Garrick Theatre, having been reborn for the #MeToo and Everyone’s Invited era. Oleanna tickets are anticipated to be in high demand for the limited season, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
What is Oleanna about?
Mamet’s play is a take on corrosive excesses of political correctness and explores the use and abuse of language. Oleanna is set on an American campus when a female student files a claim of sexual harassment against a college professor after a seemingly innocuous conversation between the pair. The piece is the ultimate drama of pupil power and student revenge.
Written by David Mamet, the play premiered in 1992 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which had an off-Broadway production a year later. The play had its London premiere in 1993 at London’s Royal Court Theatre and was directed by Harold Pinter. In 1994, the play was adapted into a film which Mamet directed himself. The show last had a London production in 2004 starring Aaron Eckhart and Julia Stiles.

Performance dates21 July - 23 October 2021
- Arts Theatre Staff will be wearing masks given the infection rate is still a threat to our industry.
- Masks will not be required by the public coming into our public spaces, however they will be required in the auditorium. Our staff will not however, be challenging or policing this as ushers – we don’t wish to interrupt the production and from experience this can be very difficult for front line staff to manage given the varying views on this policy particularly since July 19th.
- What we will do, is have signage asking everyone to follow our rules for the auditorium (masks required) and provide a united front of our team wearing them. If the public are exempt or choose not to follow this, we will have presented our policies and recommendations to them (in line with ‘see it safely’). With the law now having changed this regulation, we are unable to enforce it as strongly as before.
