The National Theatre presents Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play, 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.  Leopoldstadt tells 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.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is directed by Patrick Marber.

★★★★★ “Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece. Magnificent.” Independent
