    The Inheritance, Matthew Lopez's critically acclaimed play will transfer to the West End's Nöel Coward Theatre later this year!

    The Inheritance will finish its sold-out run at the Young Vic Theatre on Saturday 19 May, where it opened to huge acclaim. Critics recognised Matthew Lopez’s play as a modern classic, and one of the most important plays for many years. Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, Lopez’s major two-part world premiere will play a strictly limited season at the Nöel Coward Theatre, beginning previews on 21 September with an official opening performance on Saturday 13 October.

    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? Matthew Lopez’s major new two-part play 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 many interlinking lives, The Inheritance brilliantly transposes EM Forster’s novel Howards End to 21st century New York.

    Playing across two parts, which can be seen either in one day or across two evenings, Matthew Lopez’s epic new play is directed by Stephen Daldry with set and costumes by Bob Crowley, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Paul Arditti & Chris Reid, music by Paul Englishby, UK Casting by Julia Horan CDG and US Casting by Jordan Thaler CSA & Heidi Griffiths CSA.

    David Lan, who programmed the original production as Artistic Director of the Young Vic, joins as Executive Producer for the West End production.

    The majority of the original Young Vic cast will transfer with the production, including: Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, John Benjamin Hickey, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Syrus LoweMichael Marcus Vanessa RedgraveKyle Soller and Michael Walters.

    At the Noel Coward Theatre from 21 September 2018, book your tickets for The Inheritance Part 1 and The Inheritance Part 2 today!
