This smash-hit political thriller details the widely unexplored story of how Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul, and her husband, social scientist Terje Rød-Larsen, brokered top-secret meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, culminating in the historic 1993 Oslo Accords. Through back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics, common ground between Israeli and Palestinian envoys is carefully unearthed.
J.T. Rogers’ Tony and Obie Award-winning historically based political drama makes its West Coast premiere at Marin Theatre, directed by Jasson Minadakis. The 14-actor show premiered on Broadway last year; it follows Terje Rod-Larsen (Mark Anderson Phillips) and Mona Juul (Erica Sullivan), the Norwegian couple who arranged secret peace talks between Israel and the P.L.O. in the early 1990s. Their efforts led to the Olso Accords.
