Leopoldstadt Tickets

Wyndham's Theatre

Playwright Tom Stoppard returns to the West End with sweeping historical drama Leopoldstadt. Inspired by his own family’s Jewish heritage, this multi-generational play about freedom, love, and faith runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre for a limited 12 weeks.

Stoppard's intimate, multi-generational masterpiece

Playwright Tom Stoppard returns to the West End with his most personal work yet, Leopoldstadt. Inspired by his Jewish heritage, this passionate, heart-breaking drama follows one family’s journey across the tumultuous first half of the 20th century.

Vienna in 1900 was a thriving, vibrant place for the Jewish population, who escaped pogroms and oppression to converge on Leopoldstadt. But amidst freedom and prosperity, the rise of fascism across Europe was heralding a new era of violence.

Leopoldstadt is directed by Patrick Marber (Travesties) and features a cast of 24, with actors playing numerous roles in one family over the course of 50 years. 

Tom Stoppard is one of the UK’s most prolific and celebrated playwrights. His debut play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (1966), remains a huge cultural touchstone in British theatre. 

Marking the return of a legendary writer at the height of his skills, Leopoldstadt tickets offer both an intimate portrait of one family and an epic story about oppression, injustice and faith. It plays in the West End for a limited season.

Before the show, old black and white photos are displayed on the screen - I was soon to start wishing that I had sat just a little closer, to get a better look. Because this is a rather epic tale, of a wealthy Jewish family living in Vienna - Leopold Read more

It was good to see a large cast again after mainly seeing monologues and two-handers last year. Good to see a packed audience too. An engrossing and emotionally engaging play with themes that still resonate. The cast were all spot on and those whose Read more

So glad I saw this play. It commences in Vienna in 1899 and goes up to 1955 following a Jewish family. The good times and bad. There was complete silence at the end as, to me, it brought home the horrors or WW2. I would definitely recommend.
