The Inheritance

The Inheritance West End Tickets

The Inheritance is a play by Matthew Lopez that is inspired by the novel Howards End by E. M. Forster. The play was produced in London at the Young Vic Theatre under the direction of Stephen Daldry.

Following a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run at the Young Vic, Matthew Lopez’s major two-part world premiere The Inheritance lands in London’s West End for just fifteen weeks.

 

Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, this ‘monumental and transcendent’ (Time Out) production questions how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us.

 

A generation after the peak of the AIDS crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York?

 

How many words are there now for pain and for love? Stephen Daldry’s ‘remarkably involving production’ (Independent) explores profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers.

 

What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other?

 

The play has been described as Howards End-meets-Angels in America as it examines what life is like to be part of the gay community on New York a generation after the AIDS crisis.

 

It focuses on two couples, one older, one younger, as they live through the consequences of the struggles faced by the generation before them.

 

Directed by Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance is at the Noel Coward Theatre from 21st September until 5th January and tickets are now on sale.

 

Stage legend Vanessa Redgrave features in the cast of the production (appearing in part two) which also includes Kyle Soller, Andrew Burnap, John Benjamin Hickey and Paul Hilton from the original Young Vic run.
