Sir Tom Stoppard returns to the West End in 2020 for the world premiere of his most personal play yet, Leopoldstadt. Inspired by his own Jewish heritage and history, this passionate and heart-breaking drama follows one family’s journey across the tumultuous first half of the 20th century.

Vienna in 1900 was a thriving and vibrant place for the Jewish population. After being granted full rights by Emperor Franz Josef a century earlier, thousands of people fled pogroms and oppression in the East to converge on the old Jewish quarter, Leopoldstadt. As freedom gave life to prosperity, however, the rise of fascism across Europe was heralding a new era of violence. Stoppard’s play focuses on one family across multi-generations, as they rediscover what it means to be Jewish over the course of 50 years.
