NT Live: Leopoldstadt

12A, 140 mins 

Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Tony and Academy 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.

Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.

NTL 2022 The Book of Dust - Listing Image - Landscape - 1240x874px.jpg

NT Live: The Book of Dust

The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage
by Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.

Marek Dorcik's Špercasa

Slovakian/UK Jazz Quintet 

Slovakian born drummer Marek Dorcik is swiftly gaining a reputation as a sought after drummer on the international jazz scene, working with some of the UK’s leading jazz artists including Mike Walker, Alan Barnes, Stuart McCallum and Alice Zawadzki. 

Špercasa (a Slovakian play on words with ‘Šperk’ meaning ‘Jewel’ and ‘Percasa’ resembling the word ‘Percussion’) is an outstanding quintet of prominent musicians, each with their own individual contributions to the UK jazz landscape. 


Špercasa was formed in 2019 as an exciting new chapter in Marek’s Dorcik’s development as an artist and to further his journey into improvised music. The compositions on debut album About Time aim to express a concern for our planet, the changing climate and to evoke a thought concerning these global issues.


Some compositions on the album (such as the epoymous title track About Time) have an urgent and energetic feel. Others such as the ballad Golden Hour are warm and tranquil. The juxtaposition of styles and quality of musicianship makes for an enjoyable and fulfilling listen.

Luke Wright at Kino-Teatr

WINNER Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Performer 2021

Whether he’s opening for the Libertines or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is adept at taking poetry places it doesn’t normally go. John Cooper Clarke’s regular warm-up guy writes poems that are tender, riotous, caustic and romantic then delivers them with the ferocity and panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.

This is an ALL-NEW show with deliciously funny poems set against a backdrop of pandemic politics, ageing parents, and the endless, droning culture war.

Wright’s third collection The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is out now from Penned in the Margins. Ian Duhig calls it a 'a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock in fresh words'.

'Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling & hypnotic'
Carl Barât
