Hailed as a vital, modern classic at the Young Vic, Matthew Lopez’s acclaimed two-part play The Inheritance storms the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre.
Directed by the multi-Olivier Award-winning Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance is a gripping production which explores the lives of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers, a generation after the peak of the AIDs crisis.
Brilliantly transposing EM Forster’s novel Howards End to modern New York, The Inheritance asks: what is it like to be a gay young man in the city? How many words are there now for pain and for love? What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future – and each other?
By spanning generations and interlinking many lives, The Inheritance tackles the questions that define a generation.
The vast majority of the Young Vic cast reunite for the two-part play in the West End, with ensemble casting including Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, John Benjamin Hickey, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Syrus Lowe, Michael Marcus, Vanessa Redgrave, Jack Riddiford, Kyle Soller and Michael Walters.
An exquisitely truthful, moving and funny show, and simultaneously a landmark theatrical event, The Inheritance is not to be missed at the Noël Coward Theatre.
