Peter will be playing a leading role in the new National Theatre production of Oslo beginning in September.
Peter will play the role of former Palestinian Prime Minister and chief Palestinian negotiator of the Oslo Accords, Ahmed Qurie.
The production will then head off to The Harold Pinter for a three month run after completing its short run at The Lyttleton.
The cast will include Toby Stephens, Lydia Leonard and Philip Arditti. The full cast can be seen here.
In 1993, in front of the world’s press, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. Few watching would have guessed that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.
Oslo tells the true story of two maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated top secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships. Their quiet heroics led to the groundbreaking Oslo Peace Accords.
Bartlett Sher’s acclaimed production of this new play by J.T. Rogers(Blood & Gifts, The Overwhelming, NT) sets a deeply personal story against an epic historical landscape.
This darkly funny political thriller comes to the National Theatre following a sell-out run in New York, prior to a West End run later this autumn.
