National Theatre Live 2022 Leopoldstadt a new play by Tom Stoppard directed by Patrick Marber

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ Tony and Academy Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance. At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world. We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play. Filmed live on stage in London’s West End. With Greek and English subtitles

Directed by Patrick Marber

Cast: Aidan McArdle, Faye Castelow, Sebastian Armesto, Arty Froushan
