Oleanna

The People's Repertory Theatre

David Mamet’s confrontational drama from 1992, a two character battle royale with a benign surface. The play details a series of encounters between John, a professor on the verge of landing tenure, and Carol, a student on the verge of failing his class. It begins with a purely academic discussion, and culminates with a violent outburst over an accused sexual assault. A question posed as a play, about the dangers of language and the difficulties in communication that plague modern life.

Romeo and Juliet

Eastern Oregon University

Though we know the tragedy of heartbreak lies ahead, like Romeo and Juliet, we have no choice but to ignore love's dark promise because we still desire to possess it. And desire it we do, with as much passion and ignorance as the central  characters in the play. This is where Romeo and Juliet possesses it's resonance: in the desire, the willingness to possess true love no matter how great the cost.
