Matthew Lopez’s critically-acclaimed two-parter The Inheritance transfers to the Noel Coward Theatre, following a sold-out premiere at London’s Young Vic. Featuring a stellar cast, including theatre legend Vanessa Redgrave, the production has been dubbed a modern classic and explores the interlinked lives of the generation following the peak of the AIDs crisis in New York.
With many interweaving lives and stories, The Inheritance spans generations and explores what it is like to be a young gay man in New York. Transposing EM Forster’s 1910 novel Howards End to the 21st century states, the two-part play is a compelling take on the turbulent, hilarious experiences of a group of young, determined New Yorkers.
How many words are there for pain and love? What is their legacy? And what do they owe to the future, and to each other? Playing across two performances, The Inheritance can be seen either in one day or across two evenings.
