Leopoldstadt Theatre Show Information
Leopoldstadt, the brand-new play from Tom Stoppard is coming to the West End for a limited season in 2020.
Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End will host the first performances of Tom Stoppard’s new play, Leopoldstadt, the story of a Jewish family in Vienna in the early 20th century.
Directed by Patrick Marber and produced by Sonia Friedman, Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance, described as Stoppard’s most humane and heart-breaking play.
Vienna in 1900 was the most vibrant city in Europe, humming with artistic and intellectual excitement and a genius for enjoying life. A tenth of the population were Jews. A generation earlier they had been granted full civil rights by the Emperor, Franz Josef. Consequently, hundreds of thousands had fled from pogroms in the East and many found sanctuary in the crowded tenements of the old Jewish quarter, Leopoldstadt. It was not to last. Half a century later, this family, like millions of others, has re-discovered what it means to be Jewish in the first half of the 20th century.
History of Leopoldstadt
Leopoldstadt will be Tom Stoppard’s first play in five years since 2015s “The Hard Problem” and reunites Stoppard, Marber and Friedman who last collaborated on “Travesties” in 2017.
