Oslo

The Lincoln Center Theater production

a new play by J.T. Rogers

Now until 23 September
Running Time: 2 hours 55 mins with an interval

Oslo

Direct from Broadway for a limited season

Winner, Best Play at the 2017 Tony Awards

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 top secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships. Their quiet heroics led to the groundbreaking Oslo Peace Accords.

Bartlett Sher’s acclaimed production of this new play by J.T. Rogers (Blood & Gifts, The Overwhelming, NT) sets a deeply personal story against an epic historical landscape.

This darkly funny political thriller comes to the National Theatre following a sell-out run in New York, prior to a West End run later this autumn.

In association with Ambassador Theatre Group/Gavin Kalin Productions/Glass Half Full Productions
