The Inheritance Part 2 Tickets
Stephen Daldry directs a stellar cast, including Vanessa Redgrave, in Matthew Lopez’s compelling new two-part play The Inheritance. Transferring to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre after a sold-out run at the Young Vic, the production is an electrifying exploration of the lives of gay men following the peak of the New York AIDs crisis.
Matthew Lopez’s critically-acclaimed two-parter The Inheritance transfers to London’s Noel Coward Theatre, following a recent sold-out premiere at the Young Vic. Adapting EM Forster’s novel Howards End to modern-day New York, the compelling production follows a group of young, gay men after the peak of the AIDs crisis.
Spanning the lives and stories of generations, The Inheritance sees a group of ambitious, young men who consider their relationships in light of an epidemic. How many more words are there for pain and love? What will be their legacy? All of these questions come into play in Lopez’s thrilling new script.
The majority of the British and American cast from the original run transfer with the production, with full 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.
The two plays are directed by Stephen Daldry, whose credits include An Inspector Calls, Skylight, The Audience and Billy Elliot, as well as Netflix’s The Crown. The production features design by Bob Crowley, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Paul Arditti and Chris Reid, and music by Paul Englishby.
The Inheritance, by Matthew Lopez, has also drawn comparisons to Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, the biopic that was recently revived at the National Theatre and later transferred to Broadway. Focusing on the story of a young man called Eric, The Inheritance chronicles his relationship and its ups and downs.
A brand new play with an important, topical message, The Inheritance garnered wide acclaim from audiences and critics alike. Playing for a strictly limited season at London’s Noel Coward Theatre, The Inheritance Part 2 plays from 21 September 2018 to 5 January 2019, with a press night on 13 October 2018.
