West End transfer announced for the sell out two-part play THE INHERITANCE
The Young Vic‘s production of The Inheritance by Matthew Lopez has announced it will transfer to the Noel Coward Theatre in the West End from 21 September 2018 – 5 January 2019. Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, this two-part world premiere will play a strictly limited season following its sold out run at the Young Vic (where its run ends this Saturday 19 May 2018).
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 and will star 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 Lowe, Michael Marcus, Vanessa Redgrave, Kyle Soller and Michael Walters.
