National Theatre Live: Leopoldstadt

A new play by Tom Stoppard, directed by Patrick Marber. Filmed live from the Wyndam’s Theatre in London. The Olivier Award-winning play is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.

We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

★★★★★ ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece. Magnificent’ Independent

★★★★ ‘Tom Stoppard’s new masterwork is an early contender for play of the year’ Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘Tom Stoppard delivers an unforgettable play from the heart’ Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Devastatingly moving’ Jewish Chronicle

★★★★ ‘Stoppard’s back at his most personal. A glittering triumph’ Daily Mail

Disraeli - Queen Victoria’s Favourite Prime Minister

A play written and performed by Jeff Rozelaar

“We are all dreadfully disgusted at the prospect of a Jew for our Prime Minister.”
So declared Lady Palmerston when Benjamin Disraeli was given the keys to No.10 Downing Street.

This controversial characters 'intrusion' into the heart of the Victorian 'Establishment' is related imaginatively in this one-man play.

It includes references to Hughenden Manor which Disraeli acquired and lived in. The property is a very popular National Trust venue in the South East of England.

'This amazing one-man show held the audience’s rapted attention' Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain, Maidenhead Synagogue
