Based on the play of the same name, the film is the true story of a Norwegian couple who helps Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization sign a peace treaty in 1993.
The stage-to-screen adaptation of J.T. Rogers’ Tony-winning play Oslo, starring Olivier winner Andrew Scott and Tony nominee Ruth Wilson, debuts May 29 on HBO and HBO Max at 8 PM ET. The story follows a Norwegian couple as they orchestrate top-secret, high-level meetings between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, which culminated in the signing of the historic 1993 Oslo Accords.
Bartlett Sher—who helmed the Broadway staging at Lincoln Center Theater and in London—directs. Wilson plays as Mona Juul, a foreign minister opposite Scott as Terje Rød-Larsen, a sociologist and Mona’s husband.
