Lincoln Center Theater Announces Bartlett Sher-Helmed Oslo

News   Lincoln Center Theater Announces Bartlett Sher-Helmed Oslo
 
Lincoln Center Theater will present Oslo, a new play by by J.T. Rogers about the secret talks that led to the peace agreement between Israel and the PLO. Directed by Bartlett Sher, the production will debut in the summer at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

Commissioned by LCT, the new work is billed as "darkly comic." Oslo is set to begin performances June 16 with an official opening night scheduled for July 11.

"It’s 1993. The world watches the impossible: Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, 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?" ask production notes. "Why were they held in a castle in the middle of Norway? And who are these mysterious negotiators?"

The LCT staging will have sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Donald Holder and sound by Peter John Still. Casting will be announced at a later date.

J.T. Rogers' previous works include Blood and Gifts, The Overwhelming and Madagascar.
