Wyndham's Theatre

Reopening Date

22nd June, 2021

Considered as Britain’s greatest living playwright, Leopoldstadt is recognized to be Tom Stoppard’s personal play inspired by his own Jewish heritage and history. Leopoldstadt is based on a golden era of history when Vienna was extremely prosperous and its inhabitants were well-known as artistic and intellectual individuals. Leopoldstadt is best described as ‘a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.’ It is said to be Stoppard’s most grounded and heartbreaking play.

About the Show

Leopoldstadt, that premiered in Wyndham Theatre in January 2020, takes its name from the old Jewish Quarter in Vienna. A generation before 1900, the Emperor had granted full civil rights to the Jewish and a huge number sought sanctuary in the crowded Leopoldstadt’s crowded tenements. The play has been described as an intimate drama with an epic sweep; the story of a family who made good. The play is directed by Patrick Marber and is produced by Sonia Friedman, however, the full casting and team are scheduled to be announced later. Tom Stoppard, the playwright, is the recipient of several numerous Tony Awards, an Academy Award and also, an Olivier Award.

The Story

The story is a reflection of Stoppard’s life and is often referred to as Stoppard’s most intimate play. The play is set in Vienna where about 1/10 of the populations were Jewish and retells a lot of Stoppard’s life where both his grandparents and many of his parent’s family members expired in Nazi Concentration Camps. Leopoldstadt thus is described as a passionate drama of love, family, and endurance which follows a family for over half a century who discover what it means to be unabashedly Jewish.
