David Mamet's story of a male college professor and the student who accuses him of sexual harassment springs from the gender wars of the early '90s (as opposed to the ones that are, you know, always going on). It hinges on language and how it shapes perspective, a topic that never gets dated. This is also a chance to check out the fledgling Workhouse (at the Warren) in the Camden neighborhood of north Minneapolis. Workhouse took in an audience of about 500 last year, nothing to sneeze at for an independent company just making its name, and is staunchly devoted to putting down roots in a part of town that has been underserved in terms of stage options.
