Leopoldstadt Tom Stoppard’s newest and most personal play
Stoppard is known as an impersonal writer, rarely drawing on his personal life experience in his works, but his latest play turns all of that on its head. Largely influenced by his family’s personal struggle Leopoldstadt tells the story of three generations of a Jewish family in Vienna.
In an attempt to escape the segregated settlements and targeted attacks on Jewish people in the East, in the early 1900s, Vienna became a haven for many Jewish families. A vibrant artistic and intellectual centre where Jews were given full civil rights, Vienna had a large Jewish population and the old Jewish quarter of Leopoldstadt became a thriving sanctuary for many.
This intimate family drama follows a family who found success through the generations only to rediscover what it meant to be Jewish in the first half of the 20th century. A family who went from the traditional religious garb to attending the opera dressed in the height of fashion and on to become members of the social elite are the centre of this personal and heart-wrenching story of love, endurance and loss.
Who is playwright Tom Stoppard?
Born in Czechoslovakia into a family of non-practising Jews, his family fled to Singapore on the day of the Nazi occupation. After the death of his father at the hand of the Japanese forces during the Second World War, Tom’s first name would be anglicised and he would take his step-father’s surname.
Sir Tom Stoppard would go on to become a journalist, theatre critic, playwright and screenwriter. His works have earned him international acclaim including multiple Tony Awards, an Olivier Award and an Academy Award among many other prizes and honours. His numerous award-winning plays include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Arcadia, Indian Ink, In the Native State, Artist Descending a Staircase, The Coast of Utopia and Every Good Boy Deserves Favour. His most recent stage play was The Hard Problem. He co-wrote the screenplays for Shakespeare in Love, The Russia House and television projects like Professional Foul. His work is frequently political and philosophical.

A wonderful play by the great Tom Stoppard, beautifully acted. I was fully engaged with the narrative from beginning to end. There were moments of humour but as the persecution of the Jewish family unfolded it was unbearably sad

I enjoyed how tge actors were playing a lot. They are true professionals. The trip through the ages was a very interesting approach to tell a story, a sad and truely touching story.

Play was moving and funny - a very ensemble piece with too many characters to keep track of. We both enjoyed it tremendously.
Really good evening
From Stalls row 0 could not hear all the actors
I really enjoyed the play. I did feel it was quite expensive though for the seats we had. The acting and the story line really grabbed my heart. Honest and touching.
Olivia Chelache8th March
It is a wonderful ensemble piece of theatre. All of the actors were very good. The set was interesting and the direction superb. It is such a moving play and memorable. I wasn’t the only member of the audience dabbing their eyes at the end! Tom Stoppard's best piece of work.
