"Some works of art cry out for large canvases. OSLO is undeniably a big play, as expansive and ambitious as any in recent Broadway history, directed with a master's hand."

The New York Times, April 13, 2017

Peter Marks of The Washington Post calls OSLO “hands down the best new play of the season.”  Inspired by the 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, OSLO is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions.  OSLO is “thrilling, a colossus,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times.  At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “OSLO gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News).

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

    “With a well-written character, you’re always finding new caverns, sink pits, trap doors. Mostly, there’s been the joy of being able to add beads to my performance.”

  • Suggestions for Reading

    The Oslo peace accord has spawned not only J.T. Rogers’ marvelous play but a whole literature about what took place during those months in 1993.
