Discover the thrilling true story of people who risked everything for peace.

1993. Two maverick Norwegian diplomats try to coordinate top secret talks in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.

Their quiet heroics will lead them into the heart of one of the world’s longest running conflicts.

Oslo tells the true story of how one young Norwegian couple - Terje Rød-Larsen, played by Toby Stephens (Black Sails, BBC’s Jane Eyre, Private Lives) and Mona Juul, played by Lydia Leonard (Tony nominated for her role in Wolf Hall) - planned and orchestrated top-secret, high-level meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, which culminated in the signing of the historic 1993 Oslo Accords. Also starring Peter Polycarpou (The Magistrate, Oklahoma! - NT).

This gripping new play by J T Rogers, directed by Bartlett Sher, was awarded ‘Best Play’ at the 2017 Tony Awards ® and was winner of every ‘Best Play’ award on Broadway this season including those given by New York Drama Critics' Circle, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Obie and Lucille Lortel Awards.

How far would you go to make peace with your enemies?

Direct from a multi award-winning season on Broadway and a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the National Theatre, the gripping political thriller Oslo arrives in the West End for a strictly limited season from 2 Oct.

Our Oslo Review

We’re bogged down with constant talk of negotiations these days, which is inevitable – the biggest democratic decision for a generation will change all our lives. It’s going to be tough, but nothing compared to what it took Israel and Palestine just to get sat around the same table.

Video: The cast of Oslo on playing their real-life characters
Monday, October 23, 2017

After a limited run at the National Theatre, Oslo - the winner of this year’s Tony Award for Best Play - is settling in for a run in the West End at the Harold Pinter Theatre. JT Rogers’ play deals with the true story of the Oslo Accords of 1993. More specifically, how two Norwegian diplomats – who also happened to be married – set up a number of top secret negotiations between Palestine and Israel. Those talks culminated in a handshake on the lawn of the White House, and is the closest to peace the region has seen.

JT Rogers interview - 'Oslo is a play about honest, painful hope'
Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Following its award-winning run on Broadway, JT Rogers' play Oslo has just enjoyed a limited engagement at the National Theatre. As of next week, it will take up a longer residence in the West End at the Harold Pinter Theatre, so we sat down with Rogers to talk about his play, which is about Irsaeli-Palestinian negotiations, and how it came about thanks to a children's soccer match. 

Lydia Leonard interview - 'Oslo made me realise how little I knew about Israel and Palestine'
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Fresh from its run on Broadway, JT Rogers Tony Award-winning play Oslo is poised to make its UK premiere at the National Theatre. It’s about the secret talks between Israel and Palestine in 1993, orchestrated on the sly by a Norwegian couple. Lydia Leonard plays Mona Juul, alongside Toby Stephens who plays her husband. We spoke to the actress about how the play first came about at a children’s football match, and taking the play straight to the Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End. What is Oslo all about?

Oslo - In the Heart of London
Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Last Sunday I was fortunate enough to attend The 62nd Annual Drama Desk Awards in New York City - widely regarded as the second most important night of the Broadway Awards Season behind the Tony Awards, which will take place this coming Sunday, 11 June at Radio City Music Hall. One of the most coveted trophies awarded on Sunday was for "Outstanding Play" and J.T. Rogers' epic, political drama Oslo saw off some strong competition from the likes of Paula Vogel's Indecent and Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat, among others, to come out on top. Moments later, I caught up with Mr.
