A two-night Wellington season for this highly-acclaimed production by Eastbourne's Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe. Written by David Mamet, directed by John Marwick, featuring Sarah-Rose Burke and Damian Reid.

A controversial American adult drama about a university lecturer and one of his young woman students. It’s about how a teacher who misuses his power can seriously damage a vulnerable student. Or maybe it’s about how political correctness can be carried to extremes and damage the lives of well-meaning people. It’s about sexual harassment – or maybe it’s about extreme feminism.

When this piece opened on Broadway fights broke out between members of the audience.

Reviewers and audience of the Eastbourne production said:

“leaves the audience arguing long afterwards”
“excellently performed and rendered production”
“terrific performance”
“acting outstanding”
“brilliantly rendered so that your sympathies are constantly moving”
“the ending is superb”
“woke up in the morning and thought how brilliant the play was”
“made me feel sick because of the reality of it”
"we went to see Oleanna last Saturday night and reeled out into the night - thought it was brilliant, very complex and thought-provoking"
