J.T. Rogers’ play tells the surprising true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and the Palestinians. It’s 1993 and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat are standing together in the White House Rose Garden, signing the first-ever peace agreement between Israel and the PLO. How were the negotiations kept secret? And who are these mysterious negotiators? Featuring dozens of characters and set in locations across the globe, OSLO is a political thriller as well as the personal story of a small band of women and men struggling together – and fighting each other – as they seek to change the world.
