Winner of every major theatre award in 2017 including the Tony Award for Best New Play

Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of Oslo by J.T. Rogers, based on the incredible true story of the Oslo Peace Accords

Remember the stunning and iconic moment in 1993 when Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Chairman Yasser Arafat shook hands on the South Lawn of the White House? Among the many questions that laced the hope of the moment was that of Norway’s role. How did such high-profile negotiations come to be held secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside of Oslo?

A darkly funny and sweeping play, Oslo tells the surprising true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the Oslo Peace Accords between Israel and the PLO. J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas: a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions.

“…as expansive and ambitious as any in recent Broadway history…[A] colossus [with] urgent behind-the-scenes intimacy at its fast-beating heart…a marvel of both expository efficiency and exciting showmanship, by which a big picture is revealed to be a composite shot of precisely defined, imperfect individuals.” – The New York Times
“So human and so funny. OSLO is gripping, compelling, and compulsively watchable. …unequivocally fascinating…This is what we call drama, and it’s what we live for.” - Variety
Oslo is a wonderful and moving work that portrays how real diplomacy works. The play shows us what can happen when men and women on opposite sides of what is perceived as an intractable divide strive to create a shared humanity.” – Ban Ki-moon, Former Secretary-General of the United Nations

Oslo contains adult language and is not recommended for patrons under 14.
