What happened when a couple of determined Norwegians laid the ground for peace talks between Palestine and Israel? The talks were until recently a close-held secret, now the fascinating political cat is out of the bag, transformed into a play by J. T Rogers.
It was a runaway 2017 Tony Award winner. It enjoyed a brilliant sell-out run on Broadway as well as gathering a whole load of critical acclaim along the way. Now it's transferring direct from Broadway to the West End for a strictly limited season. You're going to adore Oslo!
The year? 1993. The world's media have just watched in awe as the leaders of war-torn sworn enemies Israel and Palestine shook hands on the Whitehouse lawn. But how many of the observers realised that the infamous deal had only been struck thanks to the hard work and dedication of a few key negotiators working in secret in a remote castle, in the middle of a forest just outside Oslo?
This wonderful play tells the story of those long-ago events, set up by a couple of maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated the top-secret talks. But they did a lot more than arrange things. They also managed to create lasting, strong and seemingly impossible friendships between Israelis, Palestinians, Norwegians and Americans.
The Norwegians were heroes in a typically quiet and un-ostentatious way. Their subtle heroics led to the ground-breaking Oslo Peace Accords, which in turn saved potentially thousands of lives that would otherwise have been lost to the conflict.
The multi award-winning director Bartlett Sher is at the forefront of this glittering production of J.T. Rogers’ critically acclaimed new piece. It's a magical blend of intimate personal storytelling and an enormous, wide-reaching historical epic, and it's so good it's due to be transformed into a movie. Head to the splendid Harold Pinter theatre in autumn 2017 for a theatre experience you won't forget in a hurry, fresh from a run at the National Theatre.
