National Theatre Live presents
Leopoldstadt  - a new play by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Patrick Marbe

 An epic family drama telling the story of an Austrian-Jewish family experience over 50 years from the turn of the century to World War II. Written by Britain’s greatest living playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare In Love, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) inspired by his own family history. 

Olivier Award-winner for Best New Play, LEOPOLDSTADT, written by Academy and Tony Award winner Sir Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead). Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama about love, family, and endurance that critics have hailed as “an unforgettable play from the heart” (The Telegraph) and “play of the year, a masterwork” (Evening Standard). “Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent” (Independent) and should not be missed!

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. 

We follow 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 magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
