In 1993, in front of the world’s press, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. Few watching would have guessed that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.
Oslo tells the true story of two maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated the top-secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships between Israeli, Palestinian, Norwegian and American people. Their quiet heroics led to the ground-breaking Oslo Peace Accords.
Multi award-winning director Bartlett Sher’s thrilling production of JT Rogers’ (Blood and Gifts, The Overwhelming) critically acclaimed new play Oslo sets a deeply personal story against an epic historical landscape.Soon to be made into a major feature film, this darkly funny and sweeping new work comes to the West End following a run at the National Theatre.
The National Theatre present The Lincoln Center Theater production of Oslo. Produced in association with Ambassador Theatre Group/Scott Delman.
A riveting reimagining of the secret talks that set up the historic Oslo peace accords
There is a Byzantine complexity that gives the show the grip of an intellectual thriller
For a play that chiefly consists of men in suits sitting around tables smoking and talking, JT Rogers' Oslo is gripping stuff.
This is a serious, and a seriously good, play. Gripping is the word.
