Tom Stoppard delivers an unforgettable... play from the heart

The Telegraph

Why See Leopoldstadt?

Plays

World Premiere

At the sprightly age of 81, Tom Stoppard is back with this brand new play, Leopoldstadt. Touted as the playwright's most personal work to date, Leopoldstadt is a look at the titular old Jewish Quater in 1900 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.

What we thought

ESSENTIAL moving Powerful

Leopoldstadt is not your normal Stoppard, it's his most accessible, most masterful and most deeply moving.

Weaving together five decades in the history of a Jewish family in Vienna, Tom Stoppard's latest and most personal work takes us on a heartbreaking journey.
