Vienna: Fin de Siècle to Fascism

Premieres on 15 May at 7pm, on Charleston’s YouTube channel

A rare opportunity to hear internationally award-winning dramatist Tom Stoppard in conversation with prize-winning playwright and director, Patrick Marber.

Tom Stoppard’s epic yet intimate new play ‘Leopoldstadt’, directed by Patrick Marber, traces the trajectory of the Jewish community of Vienna; from crowded tenements, to the centre of artistic and intellectual life, to annihilation.

They discuss the themes of the play — which has deep personal resonances for both of them — its production, and its contemporary relevance.

As a charity that receives no public funding, the cancellation of Charleston Festival and our current closure is financially devastating for Charleston. As you enjoy this event, please consider making a donation to Charleston’s Emergency Appeal.
