Oslo tells the true story of how a young couple - Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband, social scientist Terje Rød-Larsen - planned and orchestrated top-secret meetings between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, culminating in the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Mona Juul is currently the Norwegian Ambassador to the UK – the first woman to occupy the role. 

Featuring dozens of characters and set in locations across the globe, Oslo is both a political thriller and the personal story of a small band of women and men struggling together – and fighting each other – as they seek to change the world.  

NT Director Rufus Norris describes the play as "extraordinary, told with passion and humour, about a significant period in our recent political history."

Director Bartlett Sher says:  “Oslo is an exploration of the power of responsible political discourse.  As theatre, it brings impossible foes into direct contact with very high stakes.  And as a history play, it gave us a chance to explore an important conflict between Israel and Palestine.  We can’t imagine a better place to engage in this conversation than the National Theatre.”

The New York press on OSLO at the Lincoln Center Theater:

Crackling theater.  A vivid, thoughtful and astonishingly lucid account of a byzantine chapter in international poltics.’  - Ben Brantley, New York Times

‘A fascinating true story.  This riveting production is alive with intrigue, humor, and bristling intelligence.’  - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
