    The legendary Vanessa Redgrave is set to reprise her role for the West End transfer of Matthew Lopez’s critically acclaimed The Inheritance opening at the Noël Coward Theatre. It will be the first time in 7 years that audiences will be able to see the Tony, Olivier, Oscar and Emmy Award-winning actress on a West End stage.

    Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, this ‘monumental and transcendent' (Time Out) production questions how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us.

    A generation after the peak of the AIDs crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? How many words are there now for pain and for love?

    Stephen Daldry's ‘remarkably involving production’ (Independent) explores profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers. What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other?

    Spanning generations and interlinking lives, The Inheritance is ‘an exquisitely truthful and funny modern classic’ (Telegraph) that brilliantly transposes EM Forster’s novel Howards End to 21st century New York.

    At the Noël Coward Theatre in London from 21 September 2018 to 5 January 2019, book your The Inheritance tickets today!
