Discover the thrilling true story of people who risked everything for peace.
1993. Two maverick Norwegian diplomats try to coordinate top secret talks in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.
Their quiet heroics will lead them into the heart of one of the world’s longest running conflicts. Oslo tells the true story of how one young Norwegian couple - Terje Rød-Larsen, played by Toby Stephens (Black Sails, BBC’s Jane Eyre, Private Lives) and Mona Juul, played by Lydia Leonard (Tony nominated for her role in Wolf Hall) - planned and orchestrated top-secret, high-level meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, which culminated in the signing of the historic 1993 Oslo Accords. Also starring Peter Polycarpou (The Magistrate, Oklahoma! - NT).
This gripping new play by J T Rogers, directed by Bartlett Sher, was awarded ‘Best Play’ at the 2017 Tony Awards ® and was winner of every ‘Best Play’ award on Broadway this season including those given by New York Drama Critics' Circle, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Obie and Lucille Lortel Awards.
