by J.T. Rogers
September 19 – October 21, 2018
Fresh from Broadway and the West End, the regional premiere of this stunning new play will captivate audiences. Inspired by the true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics that led to the Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and the Palestinians, Oslo is a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas, a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. Oslo is “thrilling, a colossus,” raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. At this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, “Oslo gives us hope” (Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News). Winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play.
Post-Show Conversations will be held after evening performances on September 29, October 7, and October 13.
Joining the conversation on Saturday, October 13, will be producing Artistic Director Carol Dunne and guest Mohsen Mehdawi. Mehdawi is a third generation refugee who was born and raised in Al-Fara’a refugee camp in the West Bank of Palestine. For 18 years and before leaving to study Computer Engineering at Birzeit University in Palestine, Mohsen suffered from war, injustice, segregation, and poverty in the refugee camp. While his family was still in the camp, Mohsen considered the Upper Valley his home. He is currently studying at Lehigh university, fulfilling his passion for engineering and peace work. If you asked Mohsen, “How did you end up here?” His response would be “What’s the strongest power in this life?”
