Show Description

It begins with a gathering of young, gay New Yorkers. Each has a story aching to come out…

Profoundly touching and wickedly hilarious, Matthew Lopez's highly-anticipated two-part play,THE INHERITANCE, asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and questions the role we must play for future generations. Brilliantly re-envisioning E. M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End to 21st-century New York, it follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own – and a place to call home.  

THE INHERITANCE
is a life-affirming journey of tears and laughter, through conflicts and connections, heartbreak and hope.  A new play, generations in the making.

“A glorious saga of modern life in New York.” - The Times (London) 

“This is not simply theatre. This is life. And, oh, how it makes you want to live.” - London Daily Express
