Tom Stoppard’s most personal play to date

Leopoldstadt, an Olivier Award winning Best New Play by Tom Stoppard resumes performances at the Wyndham’s Theatre in August 2021.

Regarded as Britain’s greatest living playwright, Tom Stoppard’s new play is inspired by his family history and his most personal play to date. Directed by Patrick MarberLeopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.  An intimate drama with epic sweep, the play is set in the old Jewish quarter of Vienna, as a pious Jewish family reflect upon their religious identity in the twentieth century.

Leopoldstadt is booking until 30 October 2021 at the Wyndham’s Theatre, London.

What is Leopoldstadt about?

A passionate drama of love and endurance, Leopoldstadt follows a family as they rediscover what it means to be Jewish in the first half of the 20th century.

In Vienna in 1900, the city was vibrant and bustling with intellectual excitement and 10% of the city’s population were Jews. A generation earlier, they had been granted full civil rights by the Emperor, Franz Josef, with hundreds of thousands fleeing from the Pale and Eastern pogroms to the crowded tenements of Leopoldstadt, located in the Jewish quarter of Vienna. It is a story of a family made good. It was not to last.
