Our Review 5 / 5

A brand new Tom Stoppard play titled Leopoldstadt, which is described as "likely his most personal play," is at the Wyndham's Theatre from August 2021. Leopoldstadt tickets are available on London Theatre now.

Leopoldstadt is a play set in Vienna in 1900, when 10% of the population were Jewish. It draws on much of Stoppard's personal family life: His four Jewish grandparents and many of his parents' family died in Nazi concentration camps. Leopoldstadt is described as a "passionate drama of love, family and endurance" which follows a family over half a century who rediscover what it means to be Jewish. 

Leopoldstadt marks Stoppard's first new play in almost five years; his last was The Hard Problem, which premiered at the National Theatre. Recent productions of Stoppard's work in London include Travesties (which starred Tom Hollander at the Menier before transferring to the West End) and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at the Old Vic (which starred Daniel Radcliffe).

Leopoldstadt reunites Stoppard with Travesties director Patrick Marber. His recent productions in London include Exit the King at the National, Venus in Fur at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, and Don Juan in Soho at the Wyndham's. 

The play is produced by Sonia Friedman, and it made its world premiere in January 2020. Before it was temporarily shut down by the pandemic, the run sold out every performance. At the 2020 Olivier Awards, Leopoldstadt won Best New Play, with Adrian Scarborough winning Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

Tickets to Leopoldstadt are available now. Book tickets to Leopoldstadt on London Theatre today.

Our Review of Leopoldstadt

5/5

The last new Tom Stoppard play to open directly in the West End was Indian Ink - itself based on an earlier radio play - which premiered at the Aldwych Theatre twenty-five years ago. All of his plays since then have mostly been seen first at the National, including the three-part The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia and The Invention of Love (the latter pair of which then transferred to the West End), with one other play Rock 'n' Roll originating at the Royal Court in 2005 (though its...
