Set in Vienna, Leopoldstadt takes its title from the Jewish quarter of Vienna. The play begins in the last days of 1899 and follows one extended family deep into the 20th century. It opened in London’s West End in January 2020 but was interrupted due to the COVID-19 lockdown a few weeks later. In late 2021, it returned for another sold-out engagement.
