Leopoldstadt

Wyndham's Theatre

Tickets from £23.75
The scene is Vienna, the date is 1900. At the time the city was a vibrant centre of the arts, a creative hub, a vivid place where intellectual exploration was the nborm, a city of joy and pleasure. One in ten of the people were Jewish, given civil full rights by the Emperor Franz Josef. As a result of the Emperor's edict Jewish people streamed into the city, escaping from violence elsewhere in the world. Thousands of them settled in the tenement houses of the ancient Jewish quarter, an area called Leopoldstadt. And that's the location for this extraordinary play, a brand new masterwork by Tom Stoppard.
