Oslo at the Harold Pinter Theatre
Direct from Broadway and following a limited season at the National Theatre
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 transfers to the West End, following a sell-out run in New York and its UK premiere at the National Theatre.
Produced in association with Ambassador Theatre Group/Scott Delman
