1993. In this rollicking take on modern diplomacy, a Norwegian social scientist and his diplomat wife are determined to try a new tactic to break the long-standing deadlock of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. A secret back channel in Norway leads to unexpected breakthroughs as negotiators find common ground. When the political becomes personal, relationships are forged that offer a chance to alter the course of history.

Includes a conversation about the Oslo Accords with Steven Spiegel, Director of the Center for Middle East Development at UCLA.

Lead funding for Oslo is generously provided by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation.

Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in April 2019.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With a sense of history, heart, and, most importantly, humor, L.A. Theatre Works presents their superb audio adaptation of this 2017 Tony Award-winning play, which stands the thorny issue of Israeli-Palestinian diplomacy on its head. It’s 1993, and the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization has once again ground to a halt. Along come (and this is all true) two Norwegian diplomats, wonderfully played by JD Cullum and Devon Sorvari, who create a secret back channel for negotiators to work out their political, and sometimes highly personal, differences. The result is the 1995 Oslo II Accord. This play, which reveals that high-wire diplomacy is a very human process, is performed by an outstanding cast of internationally acclaimed actors.”
