Tom Stoppard Gets Personal In New Play

Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best New Play and two Drama Desk awards! Playwright Tom Stoppard's most personal work to date, Leopoldstadt is a look at the titular old Jewish Quarter in 1900s Vienna, after an influx of population after the Emperor, Franz Joseph, permitted the Jews in his country full civil rights a generation before. Following one family over four generations, it is a deeply poignant and important projection of the Jewish experience in the 20th century. 

Centering on one family at the heart of the community - their lives loves, passions, and complexities as they contribute to the vibrant society growing around them -  expect typical Stoppardian wit and observation, wordplay, and sweeping drama from this exciting new epic. Directed by Carey Perloff, it is Stoppard's first play that explores his Jewish ancestry and is drawn from their experiences.

His first work since 2015's The Hard Problem, Leopoldstat joins the playwright's 30-something works, alongside Travesties, Arcadia, Rosencrantz, and Guildenstern are Dead, and many more. One of the country's greatest living dramatists, Stoppard is known for creating beautiful, intelligent works that challenge the audience as much as entertain.
