A darkly funny political thriller, which sets a deeply personal story against an epic historical landscape. Winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play, the Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Play, and Best Play at the New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards.

In 1993, in front of the world’s press, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. Few watching would have guessed that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.

Oslo tells the true story of two maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated top secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships. Their quiet heroics led to the groundbreaking Oslo Peace Accords.

Oslo comes to the National Theatre London in September 2017, following a sell-out Broadway run. It then transfers to the Harold Pinter Theatre from October.
