After a stellar run at London's Young Vic, Matthew Lopez's trailblazing and epic two-parter, The Inheritance, makes its way to the Noel Coward Theatre for its West End transfer, with an appearance from theatrical royalty Vanessa Redgrave. From the playwright that brought you The Whipping Man, and Reverberation, this new work is a touching drama about New York's LGBT community. Stephen Daldry returns to direct with much of the original Young Vic cast also making the transfer.
With both parts running over three hours you can choose to see the production in one day or over consecutive evenings.
What is The Inheritance about?
It was 1983 when the spectre of AIDS reared its head in New York's flourishing gay scene, causing worldwide panic and mistrust towards gay men. Now a whole generation has passed after the countless deaths caused by the cruel disease; Lopez's poignant and tear-jerking drama examines the legacy of gay men today in New York, where reminders of the epidemic are still all-too-real. We're introduced to a cast of characters whose lives, love and hopes intwine as Lopez pitches us between past and present, illustrating the gay experience of the last 40 years with deft detail, wit and passion.
