First look at Lydia Leonard and Toby Stephens in Oslo

The production opens at the National Theatre later this month

Images have been released of the upcoming production of JT Rogers' political thriller Oslo.

The show stars Lydia Leonard, Toby Stephens, Peter Polycarpou and Philip Arditti in the true tale of Norwegian diplomats who had an effect on the peace talks between Israel and Palestine.

The rest of the cast includes Geraldine Alexander, Thomas Arnold, Nabil Elouahabi, Karoline Gable, Paul Herzberg, Jacob Krichefski, Yair Jonah Lotan, Anthony Shuster, Daniel Stewart and Howard Ward.

The play won the Tony Award for Best New Play and the production runs at the National Theatre ahead of a West End transfer.

Oslo is directed by Bartlett Sher and has an entirely new British cast. Rogers has previously had his plays Blood and Gifts and The Overwhelming run at the National Theatre.

Oslo runs at the National Theatre until 23 September and then runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 2 October to 30 December.
