Synopsis

For the latest production headed to the Harold Pinter Theatre we turn our attentions to the latest play from the writer J. T. Rogers, which has enjoyed widespread success thanks to its appearances on the other side of the Atlantic.

Oslo, which looks at events surrounding the Oslo Peace Accords in the early 1990s, won a Tony Award in 2017 for Best Play and that was just the latest accolade bestowed upon the show since it first started playing in the United States in 2016. So a West End transfer was inevitable and now London theatregoers can get a look-in.

The focus is on two Norwegian diplomats and the less famous discussions that they held in the run up to the iconic talks between Israel and Palestine. So we see what happened behind the scenes in the secret discussions that organised the historic meeting.

It is the latest in a long line of shows that imagines what happened behind closed doors and once again it has captured audience’s imaginations as they gain glimpses into parts of historical events to which they had no access.

Working from J. T. Rogers’ script, Bartlett Sher directs and he does so as an award-winning director in his own right. Oslo has naturally thrown him into the spotlight once again but he has already earned success for a range of shows in the United States and has also presented his work in the UK as well, including a project for the English National Opera.

Audiences can catch Oslo when it runs at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre later in the year.
