A new play by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Patrick Marber


Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.


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.



‘Tom Stoppard’s new masterwork is an early contender for play of the year.’

Evening Standard



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