Pellerin, O’Connell team up in Mamet’s play ‘Oleanna’
Actors Krystin Pellerin and Steve O’Connell from “Republic of Doyle” have traded TV cameras for a live audience this week, performing as a student and teacher in Sweetline Theatre’s production of David Mamet’s play “Oleanna.”
Krystin Pellerin and colleague Steve O’Connell will take a brief break from their TV roles on “Republic of Doyle” to appear on stage until Saturday night in David Mamet’s play “Oleanna.”

O’Connell plays John, a university professor on the verge of attaining tenure, and Pellerin plays Carol, a student having trouble grasping the material in his course.
“Their office meeting to discuss the problematic material eventually leads them in directions they never could have imagined and combine to create a powerful piece of theatre that will have you on the edge of your seat and challenge you to remain neutral,” Sweetline says in a media release.
“Oleanna” is directed by award-winning director Danielle Irvine. The play will run at the Barbara Barrett Theatre in the St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre until Saturday night, with a pay-what-you-can matinée at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Tickets are $27 ($22 for students and seniors) and can be bought at the Arts and Culture Centre box office, by calling
