A new transfer from Broadway is winging its way into the Harold Pinter Theatre this October, following a limited run at the National Theatre. JT Rogers's Oslo, one of 2016's best reviewed plays first premiered off-Broadway last year before a successful run on the Great Wide Way beckoned. Tony Award-winning Bartlett Sher returns to direct this London production.
The backbone of the play is the 1993 Oslo Accords to bring peace between Israel and Palestine where Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband Tejre Rod-Larsen co-ordinated the talks. The play originally starred Tony winning actors Jennifer Ehle (The King's Speech) and Jefferson Mays (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder), with the London cast yet to be announced.
This politically adept comic thriller shows diplomats, friends and lovers from all over the world outside of the spotlight, struggling to pull in the same direction and avoid scandal! Erudite, intelligent and wholly entertaining, Oslo crafts both a thriller and warm human drama around events which had the power to change the world.
Opening night: 30 September 2017
Booking through until: 30 December 2017
Suitable for ages 12+
