Oslo swept the 2016-2017 awards season in New York, winning the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play, as well as the Drama Desk Award, NY Drama Critics' Circle Award, Lucille Lortel Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Drama League Award, and Obie Award.
Oslo was also mounted in London in the fall of 2017 at the National Theatre and on the West End at the Harold Pinter Theatre, where it garnered two Olivier nominations, including Best New Play.
Oslo is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians.
Thus far, Oslo has been produced in five different countries: the U.S., England, South Korea, Canada, and Norway.
As the Soviet army burns its way through Afghanistan, CIA operative Jim Warnock is sent to try and halt its bloody progress, beginning a secret spy war behind the official hostilities. Spanning one decade and two continents, Blood and Gifts is a sweeping, often shockingly funny epic drama.
