Leopoldstadt

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 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, directed by Patrick Marber, is an intimate drama 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.

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

  • Thought-provoking and emotionally powerful

    20 March 2020

    A thought-provoking and emotionally powerful exploration of 20th centrury history, Jewish identity and one's relationship both to family and the past. Could risk being a history lecture, but is driven by Stoppard's usual intelligence and wit. Performed beautifully by the cast. Adrian Scarborough in particular is a stand out as Herman. Thoroughly recommend. Can only hope it is able to complete the run in due course.

    15 March 2020

    I was pleased to have read the playscript before hand so the large cast of characters was not a surprise and it was a pleasure to recognise them. I was also prepared for the key moments. Some were powerfully ironic, especially for Herman, whose acting, as was Gretel, his wife, outstanding and moving. I thought the last part, apart from the recital of the names, was underpowered and perhaps overacted, specifically the meeting of the grown-up cousins =,although my wife was very moved.

    It was a great work which encompassed many aspects of the growth of anti Semitic behaviours. The narrative element was strong and underpinned by excellent individual and ensemble acting.
