‘My Education’ by Susan Choi

A couple of decades ago, long before David Mamet came out as a conservative, his play “Oleanna” stacked the deck badly against its female character, a two-dimensional, 20-year-old undergraduate who accuses a college professor of sexual harassment.

The play premiered in 1992 at the Hasty Pudding Theater in Cambridge, then opened in New York. “ ‘Oleanna’ might be a meatier work if its female antagonist had more dimensions, even unpleasant ones,” Frank Rich suggested in his New York Times review.
