Playwright JT Rogers joins us to talk about his award-winning Oslo. It's about the 1993 negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. Rogers says theater, like diplomacy, works when it’s personal.
Tuesday, we’re broadcasting a conversation with the playwright JT Rogers, whose Tony-award winning work Oslo is currently on stage at Pioneer Theatre Company. The play is built around the secret 1993 negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, when bureaucrats and economists tried to achieve peace. Really though, Oslo is about people with backstories, grudges, and crazy ideas. We talk to Rogers about how great theater can be like diplomacy: it works when it’s personal.
Oslo runs through September 29 at Pioneer Theatre Company. For tickets and more information, visit pioneertheatre.org or call 801-581-6961
