A synopsis on Oleanna

Show description

 A college student, Carol, drops by her professor’s office in an effort to gain his help to do better in class. John, the professor, in the midst of buying a house to celebrate his nomination for tenure, at first seems distant. As the first meeting progresses the two discuss the nature of understanding and judgment in society, as well as their very own natures and places in our society. It seems as if a bond has been made. When next they meet we find that a report has been filed to the tenure committee. Carol has joined a “group” and has decided that John sexually harassed her during their first meeting. Their second meeting dissects the first; every word, every nuance of the first meeting has been twisted into something else. Or has it? John’s unsuccessful attempts to convince Carol to retract her accusation escalate to a more dangerous level. The third meeting, one the court officers warned against, climaxes violently, leaving John and Carol both physically and emotionally devastated.
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. “One of the ten best plays of 1992…reason enough to cheer for the future of the theatre.” —Time Magazine.

We are proud to collect donations for RACKET.

racketRACKET. was founded by Broadway’s Margo Seibert (In Transit, Rocky) and her lifelong friend, Caroline Angell. They believe that all people deserve a shame-free relationship to their periods regardless of socioeconomic circumstances. RACKET. aims to redefine menstrual hygiene products as essential; to provide menstruating people access to these products; and to encourage an open dialogue about menstruation, thereby transforming a historically taboo subject into one that connects communities.

During the run of Oleanna, Outvisible and our sister studio, Arts Detroit, will be collecting donations for RACKET. Please considering bringing a menstruation product to donate when you come to see the show!
