At the beginning of the 20th Century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna. But Hermann Merz, a manufacturer and baptised Jew married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world. Gathered in the Merz apartment in a fashionable part of the city, Hermann’s extended family are at the heart of Tom Stoppard’s epic yet intimate drama. By the time we have taken leave of them, Austria has passed through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and – for Austrian Jews – the Holocaust in which 65,000 of them were murdered. It is for the survivors to pass on a story which hasn’t ended yet.

The creative team behind the production includes: Set designs are by Richard Hudson, with costume designs by Brigitte Reiffenstuel, lighting by Neil Austin, sound and original music by Adam Cork, and movement by EJ Boyle. Casting is by Amy Ball CDG,with children’s casting by Verity Naughton.

Leopoldstadt had its world premiere in January 2020 and was scheduled to play a 20 week run until the 13th June 2020. Due to the pandemic, the last performance before lockdown was the 14th March 2020.

Leopoldstadt will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 7th August until the 30th October. To book tickets click here or visit: Love, Theatre Tickets, London Theatre Direct, Last or From the Box Office.
