Oleanna Preview (Curtain Calls 5.4, November 2009, p. 4)

“Oleanna” was presented in the lab format because of the adult language and themes used by playwright David Mamet. This show gave Community Players a chance to perform a well-written adult drama that is not produced very often. It was a success for the audiences that came to see the show; the actors were first rate. For the final performance on November 21st, there was an audience talk-back. This period of time was to allow the audience to ask any question about the play to the actors, the staff or the crew.
