Synopsis

A darkly funny political thriller, winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play.

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 grand manor house 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 helped lead to the groundbreaking Oslo Accords.

The play had a sell-out run in New York in 2016, and received its UK premiere at the National Theatre, London, in September 2017, prior to a West End transfer.
