Leopoldstadt is a play by Sir Tom Stoppard which will have its premiere on 25 January 2020 at Wyndham's Theatre in London. Patrick Marber, who worked with Stoppard on the revival of Travesties in London and New York, will direct, commenting that "It’s a big company play which as a director is incredibly exciting to do. It’s got the lot.”[1]

The play is set among the Jewish community of Vienna in the first half of the 20th century and follows the lives of "a prosperous Jewish family who had fled the pogroms in the East".[2] According to Stoppard the play "took a year to write, but the gestation was much longer. Quite a lot of it is personal to me, but I made it about a Viennese family so that it wouldn’t seem to be about me.” Stoppard discovered in the early 1990s that his four grandparents had been Jewish and died in Nazi concentration camps.[3]
