Leopoldstadt, Tom Stoppard's Olivier Award-winning new play, directed by Patrick Marber is screening via National Theatre HOME.
Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece. Magnificent.
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
Filmed live at Wyndham's Theatre, this passionate drama of love, family and endurance comes to cinemas from 27 January 2022.
