Oslo

Audiences have a taste for plays that take real life historical events and add a unique twist. These often take the forms of modern political stories, such as 2017’s Labour of Love, which uses the 2017 General Election as its jumping-off point, or even historical classics like Julius Caesar. For the latest production headed to the Harold Pinter Theatre, however, we will be asked to cast our minds back to the early 1990s and the events surrounding the Oslo Peace Accords.

It is a subject of great importance defined by the iconic photo of US President Bill Clinton alongside Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian Liberation Organisation leader Yasser Arafat shaking hands. But Oslo delves behind the scenes and looks at the discussions that took place well before that photo was taken.

And with that as the subject matter it is easy to see how this has become one of the most talked-about plays on the other side of the Atlantic in the last year. From critical acclaim to audience enthusiasm, its success led it to the 2017 Tony Awards and a win in the category of Best Play and now it heads to the West End to show the latest group of theatregoers why this is a must-see.

The focus is on two Norwegian diplomats near Oslo who were tasked with negotiations prior to the accords. Their meetings were a secret at the time but they involved organising seemingly impossible talks between Rabin and Arafat and as a result they make for some intriguing viewing as they are dramatised on the stage.

The production is directed by Bartlett Sher, who has previously found huge success with a range of productions on the other side of the Atlantic, winning awards along the way. Here in the UK he has directed productions like Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown at the Playhouse Theatre and Two Boys for the ENO.

His latest work sees him tackle a script by J. T. Rogers, whose previous plays have included Blood And Guts, Madagascar and Murmuring In A Dead Tongue, to name but a few.

Oslo opens at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre on Saturday 30th September 2017 and continues until the end of the year.
