In 1993 the Norwegian diplomats Mona Juul and her husband Terje Rød-Larsen were instrumental in organising top secret peace talks between sworn enemies the Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, Yasser Arafat. The negotiations and their part in them remained secret for many years before a coincidental chance encounter between the Rød-Larsen, the playwright T. J Rogers, and their mutual friend the US theatre director Bartlett Sher. The end result is Oslo, a fascinating part-factual, part imagined story of the seminal 1990s negotiations.
This is one heck of an award-winner. In May 2017 it won the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Play. It won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2017 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Play, a couple of Obies, the 2017 Tony for Best Play, plus the 2017 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. It also won the 2016-2017 New York Drama Critics' Circle award for Best Play, sweeping up more awards than most productions can shake a stick at. If quality sits at the heart of the plays you love best and you're a fan of modern history, you'll be glued to the stage.
