OSLO, the theatrical phenomenon transfers direct from a critically acclaimed sold-out run on Broadway for a strictly limited season to the Harold Pinter theatre.
‘The stuff of crackling theatre’ - New York Times
‘Bartlett Sher’s striking production of this compelling drama’ - Variety
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 original play has won 7 Tony® Award Nominations including ‘Best Play’, 3 Drama League nominations including ‘Best Play,’ 2 Drama Desk Award nominations including ‘Best Play’ and 2 Outer Critics Circle Award nominations including ‘Best Play.’
