Vienna in 1900 was the most vibrant city in Europe, humming with artistic and intellectual excitement and a genius for enjoying life. A tenth of the population were Jews. A generation earlier they had been granted full civil rights by the Emperor, Franz Josef. Consequently, hundreds of thousands fled from the Pale and the pogroms in the East and many found sanctuary in the crowded tenements of the old Jewish quarter, Leopoldstadt.

Leopoldstadt, the sixth collaboration between Sonia Friedman Productions and Tom Stoppard, reunites Stoppard, Marber and Friedman who last collaborated on Travesties in 2017.
