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.
After completing a sold-out Off Broadway run and a sold-out Broadway run at Lincoln Center Theater, through July 16, 2017, OSLO will move September 2017 to London's National Theatre, followed by a run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London's 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 he did with wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions.
