By Tom Stoppard
Thursday, November 10, 2022
Run time: 140 minutes (no interval)
Regarded as 'Britain's greatest living playwright' (Times), Tom Stoppard's critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family, and endurance.
Directed by Patrick Marber, Stoppard's fellow dramatist and, it can now be said, Jew, the play is epic in size and scope with a cast of nearly 40. Rather than setting it in Czechoslovakia, the country of Stoppard's birth, the action takes place almost entirely in a single Viennese apartment and spans 55 years.

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.
Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
A production from Sonia Friedman Productions.
