As we await further guidance from the government regarding the safe re-opening of theatres, LEOPOLDSTADT performances continue to be postponed.

However, we are pleased to inform you that we are still planning to resume LEOPOLDSTADT performances at a later date. Once the new dates have been finalised, we will automatically transfer your booking and ticket(s) across to the closest equivalent performance within the limited run; and will contact you with all the new details. If you’re unable to attend the new date, please be assured that your point of purchase will be able to provide a credit voucher, exchange or refund.

If you are a ticket holder you do not need to do anything for the moment as your ticket provider will be in contact.

For now, we would like to recognise our staff, artists and producers for their ongoing support. And, of course, especially you, for your continued commitment to our production and the theatre community during this time of uncertainty.

We look forward to welcoming you just as soon as possible.

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.

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (The Times), Tom Stoppard’s new play, directed by Patrick Marber, is an intimate drama with an epic sweep; the story of a family who made good.

Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance. Tom Stoppard’s most humane and heart-breaking play.
