Best Play: 'Oslo' or 'Sweat'?
Here's the synopsis of "Oslo," per Broadway.
J.T. Rogers' darkly funny new play tells the surprising true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas: a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions.
