Hawkhurst

NT Live: Leopoldstadt (12A) 140mins

Screening at Kino Rye, Hawkhurst and Bermondsey on Thursday 27th January at 7.45pm. 

Regarded as Britain’s greatest living playwright (The Times), 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, including Sebastian Armesto, Jenna Augen, Rhys Bailey, Cara Ballingall, Faye Castelow, Joe Coen, Felicity Davidson and Mark Edel-Hunt represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End at the Wyndham Theatre.
