“A riveting political thriller.” — Associated Press

Chicago’s award-winning TimeLine Theatre Company presents the Chicago premiere of the 2017 Tony Award® winner for Best Play, Oslo.

Don’t miss this remarkable story about the unlikely friendships, quiet heroics, and sheer determination that pushed two foes to reach something neither thought truly possible—peace.

When the Israeli prime minister and the chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization shook hands on the White House lawn in 1993, the world had no idea what it took to orchestrate that momentous occasion. Behind the scenes, a Norwegian diplomat and her social scientist husband hatched an intricate, top secret, and sometimes comical scheme to gather an unexpected assortment of players at an idyllic estate just outside Oslo. Far from any international glare, mortal enemies were able to face each other not as adversaries, but as fellow human beings.

J.T. Rogers’ Oslo is a humorous, surprising, and inspiring true story about the people inside politics, and the incredible progress that is possible when we focus on what makes us human—together.

Oslo was the recipient of the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Play, as well as New York Critics, Outer Critics, Drama Desk, Drama League, Lucille Lortel, and Obie awards, and was nominated for the Olivier and Evening Standard awards.

Recurring weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
