On Stage: The Inheritance
The Inheritance is a brilliant re-envisioning of E. M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End to contemporary New York. The Inheritance follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own – and a place to call home.
Profoundly touching and wickedly hilarious, Matthew Lopez’s highly-anticipated two-part play asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and questions the role we must play for future generations.
This epic new play by Matthew Lopez marks the Broadway debut of one of America’s boldest theatrical voices, and is directed by visionary two-time Tony Award® winner Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, Netflix’s The Crown). 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.
