Exploring Jewish identity through the intergenerational story of the urbane and secular Merz family, Leopolstadt is a must-see story of a Jewish family in Vienna across six decades from 1899 – 1955.At the beginning of the 20th Century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna. But Hermann Merz, a manufacturer and baptised Jew married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.The story visits the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and – for Austrian Jews – the Holocaust, leaving the survivors to pass on a story which hasn’t ended yet.Wise, witty and devastatingly sad, yet teeming with humanity and history, it’s inspired by Tom Stoppard’s own Jewish heritage.Book your tickets online here.

Red Square

The tube journey on the Piccadilly line between Leicester Square and Covent Garden is London’s shortest, travelling only 260 metres. It lasts only 45 seconds and at £29.81 per mile, is one of the worlds’ most expensive rail journeys – enough of an incentive to take the scenic route and walk.
