Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt – Casting announced for 2021

Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt Update for Leopoldstadt at Wyndham's Theatre

We're delighted to hear that Sonia Friedman Productions' brilliant Leopoldstadt is back, with casting announced for 2021. The drama kicks off from 7th August and lasts until 30th October, with rehearsals already underway. This is award-winning stuff from the legendary Tom Stoppard, a powerful play set in the ancient Jewish quarter of Leopoldstadt in Vienna. An 'epic yet intimate' drama, it is quite simply brilliant.

Who’s involved in Leopoldstadt?

Roll back time to the early 20th century, where we meet Hermann Merz, a Jew married to a Catholic called Gretl. The play takes us through the family's experiences of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and – for Austrian Jews – the Holocaust, which murdered 65,000 of them. These are the compassionate and highly skilled actors who bring this unique story to life on stage:

  • New cast member Cara Ballingall plays Jana
