***** 'Stop the clocks; the race is won. Here is the play of this year and last year and quite possibly next year as well' - Evening Standard
Described as “perhaps the most important American play of the century so far” (The Telegraph), Matthew Lopez’s major two-part drama, The Inheritance, transfers to the West End following its sold-out run at the Young Vic.
This “crystalline production, pierces your emotional defences” (The Guardian), exploring profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious, gay New Yorkers.
Directed by the multi-Olivier Award-winning Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance runs at the Noel Coward Theatre until 19th January 2019 and features Vanessa Redgrave in Part 2.
The Inheritance plays across two parts, which can be seen either in one day or over two evenings. This “masterly production” (LondonTheate.co.uk) is poetic, naughty and unmissable.
***** ‘Witty, Outrageous and Piercingly Vivid’ - Evening Standard
***** ‘Altogether Extraordinary’ - Gay Times
***** ‘The Inheritance is like immersing yourself in a great novel. Matthew Lopez has created characters who are fascinating, funny, self-aware and self-destructive in a way more lifelike than theatre normally has the skill or the space to manage. A glorious achievement.’ - The Times

What is it like to be a young gay man in New York a generation after the peak of the AIDs epidemic? What does it mean to stand on the shoulders of those who have come before you? What is owed to the future and the people around you? How many words are there for pain and for love?
Spanning generations and countless interlinking lives, The Inheritance brilliantly transposes E.M. Forster’s novel ‘Howards End’ to 21st century New York in an achingly tender critically-acclaimed two-part drama.
