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.
