A new play by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Patrick Marber
Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.
★★★★★‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece. Magnificent.’ Independent
★★★★‘Breath taking, the work of a master’ Time Out
At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.
We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.
★★★★‘Tom Stoppard delivers an unforgettable play from the heart.’ Telegraph
★★★★‘Devastatingly moving ’Jewish Chronicle.’
Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
