In 1993, unbeknownst to the rest of the world, an audacious husband-and-wife team of Norwegian bureaucrats assembled a motley band of would-be diplomats from the Middle East to attempt the unimaginable: negotiate peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Operating only through back-channels—in secrecy, and without any official bargaining power—the group struggles to find middle ground as political tensions reach a fever pitch. But at the heart of diplomacy lies empathy, and these peacemakers must rely on the strength of the surprising personal bonds they have forged if they want to succeed. Artistic Director Ryan Rilette helms this thrilling nail biter, based on the true events surrounding the Oslo Peace Accords, that swept the 2016-2017 awards season.
