2020's Olivier Award winner for Best New Play
One of the casualties of the March 2020 lockdown, Leopoldstat is back this year for a limited 12-week run. Touted as the playwright Tom Stoppard's most personal work to date, Leopoldstadt is a look at the titular old Jewish Quarter in 1900s Vienna, after an influx of population after the Emperor, Franz Joseph, permitted the Jewish in his country full civil rights a generation before.
Centering on one family at the heart of the community - their lives, loves, passions and complexities as they contribute to the vibrant society growing around them - expect typical Stoppardian wit and observation, wordplay and sweeping drama from this exciting new epic. Directed by Patrick Marber, it is Stoppard's first play that explores his Jewish ancestry and is drawn from their experiences.
His first play since 2015's The Hard Problem, Leopoldstat joins the playwright's 30 something works, alongside Travesties, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and many more. One of the country's greatest living dramatists, Stoppard is known for creating beautiful, intelligent works that challenge the audience as much as entertain.
