J T Rogers' gripping new diplomacy drama Oslo, named Best Play at the 2017 Tony Awards, makes its West End premiere at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
Having garnered every 'Best Play' award on Broadway in 2017, including those given by New York Drama Critics' Circle, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Obie and Lucille Lortel Awards, the production transfers across the Atlantic and features a cast led by stage and screen star Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Die Another Day).
In 1993, with the eyes of the world watching and the global press gathered for a momentous occasion, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. But few observers could have known that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.
This political thriller and story of struggle follows how one young Norwegian couple, Mona Juul (played by Lydia Leonard) and her husband Terje Rød-Larsen (Stephens), arranged and orchestrated high-level meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, ultimately culminating in the historic signing of the 1993 Oslo Accords.
