Description

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.

Performance dates: 18 Jan 2019 - 19 Jan 2019

Running time: 3 hours 20 minutes (with one 10 minute interval and a 5 minute pause)

Age recommendation: Recommended 14+. No under 10's.

Special notice: Those who love detailed, engaging stories set in a modern world won’t want to pass over The Inheritance. With thought-provoking themes about love and legacy, theatregoers of all ages and backgrounds should see this two-parter.

By the time Part Two starts, you can tell everyone in the theatre is hungry for more of this epic play, and no one is disappointed by the end. Honestly if you are reading this thinking of seeing The Inheritance, go and book tickets right now.

The play was unexpectedly funny, but even more it was emotional. I think I never cried and felt so much with characters as I did with this play. It's easy to identify with them, especially when you are a member of the LGBTQ+ Community. But even if not, you can't help yourself to feel with these characters. It's a two part play, so very long in the full length. I day seated for my tickets and did the two shows on one day. I would seriously not recommend to try this, if you have never done a two show day before as an audience member. Especially not when you also day seat for the tickets before. It's different through, when you are an experienced theatre guest.

Amazing. Although the website says both parts can be enjoyed separately, I’d say that’s not true so do make sure to see part 1 first. Thoroughly engaging, funny and heartbreaking in equal measure. Astonishing performances from all and a great production overall.
