OSLO swept the 2016-2017 awards season, 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.
With its multiple award wins, OSLO's Broadway Run has been extended by Lincoln Center Theater one final time, through July 16, 2017. OSLO will move September 2017 to London's National Theatre, followed by the Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End.
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.
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO “the stuff of crackling theater.” Peter Marks of The Washington Post calls OSLO “hands down the best new play of the season.” At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “OSLO gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News).
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.
