The new ‘masterwork’ (Evening Standard) opened to overwhelming critical acclaim and sold-out performances in 2020 & 2021 – don't miss on a big screen near you.
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.
‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
