Bringing digital cinema and theatre to the heart of the Peak District

National Theatre: Leopoldstadt

We will be showing Tom Stoppard’s new play Leopoldstadt filmed live at The Wyndham’s Theatre on Thursday 25th June at 7.00pm.

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (The Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt 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.

You can find more information about the play at the official website and view Tom Stoppard and director Patrick Marber in conversation about Leopoldstadt here

Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences. Please arrive in plenty of time to register and, if you wish,  order interval drinks.
