Tom Stoppard's brand new play is set in 1900, in the Viennese Jewish quarter that shares its name. It focusses on a family and their lives over the turbulent first half of the 20th century. The play is the sixth collaboration between Sonia Friedman Productions and Stoppard and reunites the trio of Friedman, Stoppard and director Patrick Marber, who last worked on Travesties in 2017.

Set design is by Richard Hudson, with costume design by Brigitte Reiffenstuel, lighting by Neil Austin, sound and original music by Adam Cork and movement by EJ Boyle. Casting is by Amy Ball, with children's casting by Verity Naughton.

The show is currently booking until 13 June.
