Here is the play of this year and last year and quite possibly next year as well.
It begins with a gathering of young, gay New Yorkers. Each have a story aching to come out…
Perhaps the most important American play of the century. A richly imagined world that has the innate thrill of a page-turner.
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 Howard’s 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 highly entertaining, rollercoaster epic. Pierces your emotional defences and enfolds you in its narrative.
