Vivian Beaumont Theatre (Broadway)
150 West 65th St. at Broadway New York, NY 10023

How did the 1993 Middle East peace talks come to be held secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo?



A darkly funny and sweeping new play, OSLO tells the surprising 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. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, 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. Directed by Bartlett Sher.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Oslo

Theater Review: 'Oslo'
8 / 10

Besides turning an historic event into high-brow entertainment, 'Oslo' is impressively even-handed. Both sides emerge proudly arrogant, yet desperate for peace. And while that peace didn't last, this excellent play offers hope that history can once again repeat itself.

The Gripping 'Oslo' Tells Untold Tale Behind Israeli and Palestinian Peace Accord
8 / 10

In the end, 'Oslo' may not give many answers - but it instead stresses the importance of communication across the aisle, even if the results don't lead to what one might desire. Living in today's divisive political climate, it hard not to feel inspired by that.
