Red Dirt Theatre Company presents David Mamet play "Oleanna" Joel Abel directs David Mamet's Oleanna slated for the brand new Paramount Theatre on March 4,5,11,12,18, 2016. The production stars Todd Clark as John, the middle-aged college professor and Brittany Danielle Johnson as Carol, the young college student. Written by the Pulitzer Prize winning David Mamet, (author of plays such as Glengarry Glen Ross and films such as Wag the Dog and Hoffa), Oleanna is an edge-of-your-seat drama covering the themes of power, manipulation, spin and human perception. By the end of the piece, the audience is fully engaged in this riveting psychological "everyman" story, completely aware that life, and our good-standing in it, sits precariously on a fence and could, at any moment, be jostled from its perch. Spectators notoriously find themselves siding with one character or the other in this two-person drama which begins when a struggling student visits the office of her college professor for help. The seemingly harmless encounter quickly turns sour. Crackling dialogue combined with breathtaking realism make this unique play an unforgettable warning to us all. How are our words and actions truly perceived? Is what we said, really what we meant? And was that what was heard? Oleanna is more than just an examination of political correctness; it guarantees to elicit emotional debate. Oleanna runs March 4,5,11,12,18, at the brand new Paramount Theatre OKC at 11 North Lee in the historic Downtown OKC Film Row. For tickets call (405) 406-4833 or email
