Vienna in 1900 was the most vibrant city in Europe, humming with artistic and intellectual excitement and a genius for enjoying life. A tenth of the population were Jews. A generation earlier, they had been granted full civil rights by the Emperor, Franz Josef. Consequently, hundreds of thousands had fled from the Pale of Settlement and the pogroms in the East and many found sanctuary in the crowded tenements of the old Jewish quarter, Leopoldstadt.

Tom Stoppard's new play is a passionate drama of love and endurance, an intimate play with an epic sweep, the story of a family who made good.

'My grandfather wore a caftan,' says Hermann, a factory owner, 'My father went to the opera in a top hat, and I have the singers to dinner.'

It was not to last. Half a century later, this family, like millions of others, has re-discovered what it means to be Jewish in the first half of the 20th century.

Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt premieres in February 2020 at Wyndham's Theatre, London, in February 2020.

'One of Britain's greatest living playwrights to provide his most personal play yet.' The Times

'The news that Tom Stoppard has written a new drama ranks as top-end seismic activity.' Daily Telegraph

Book Description FABER & FABER, United Kingdom, 2020. Paperback. Condition: New. Main. Language: English. Brand new Book. At the beginning of the 20th Century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna.

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. Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt was first performed at Wyndham's Theatre, London, in January 2020.
