Direct from a multi award-winning season on Broadway and a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the National Theatre, the gripping political thriller Oslo arrives in the West End for a strictly limited season.
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 J.T. 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 Harold Pinter Theatre following a run at the National Theatre.
