The Mighty Lincoln Company announces their inaugural production, OLEANNA. Written by David Mamet, the dramatic two-hander is a seething investigation of “political correctness” in a time when the nation's morality has been tested by increased incidents of sexual harassment. The production will be held September 7-9, 14-16, and 21-23 at the Valiant Theatre & Lounge.

Carol, a college student, visits her professor, John, in his office for help in his class. The two discuss their natures and places in society, and a bond appears to have been made. When next they meet, Carol has filed a report against John to the tenure committee that he sexually harassed her. 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 dangerous level. A third, ill-advised meeting climaxes violently, leaving both physically and emotionally devastated.

New Orleans veteran actor and adjunct professor, John Neisler makes his directorial debut with Ashton Akridge in the role of Carol and James Yeargain as John.

“Twenty-five years after its original production, Oleanna is just as relevant today as it was when it premiered,” Neisler says. “Ashton and James have amazing chemistry and deliver visceral performances in a battle for power.”
