Leopoldstadt

The West End Premiere of Tom Stoppard's new play Leopoldstadt in London

Vienna in 1900 was one of the most vibrant cities in Europe, artistically, culturally and intellectually. Some 10% of the population were Jewish. Since the mid-1850's, when Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria had granted Jews full civil rights, the Jewish population in Vienna grew, reaching around 10% of the population, mostly located in the old Jewish quarter of Leopoldstadt.

“My grandfather wore a caftan,” says Hermann, a factory owner, “My father went to the opera in a top hat, and I have the singers to dinner.” But it was not to last. 50 yeaars later, this family, like many of others, had to re-discovered just what it meant to be Jewish in the first half of the 20th century.

Directed by Patrick Marber. Casting to be announced.

Tom Stoppard's plays recently seen in London's West End include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at the Old Vic Theatre in 2017 directed by David Leveaux and starring Daniel Radcliffe; Travesties at the Apollo Theatre in 2016 directed by Patrick Marber and starring Tom Hollander and Freddie Fox; The Real Thing at the Old Vic Theatre in 2010 directed by Anna Mackmin and starring Toby Stephens; Arcadia at the Duke of York's Theatre in 2009 directed by David Leveaux; Rock'n'Roll at the Duke of York's Theatre in 2007 directed by Trevor Nunn; Jumpers at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2003 directed by David Leveaux and starring Simon Russell Beale; and Indian Ink at the Aldwych Theatre in 1995 directed by Peter Wood and starring Felicity Kendal.
