Matthew Lopez’s epic two part drama transfers to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre following a hugely successful sell-out run at the Young Vic earlier this year.

The play has been described as Howards End-meets-Angels in America as it examines what life is like to be part of the gay community on New York a generation after the AIDS crisis. It focuses on two couples, one older, one younger, as they live through the consequences of the struggles faced by the generation before them.

Directed by Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance is at the Noel Coward Theatre from 21st September until 5th January and tickets are on sale now. Tickets for part two of The Inheritance are available here.

Stage legend Vanessa Redgrave features in the cast of the production (appearing in part two) which also includes Kyle Soller, Andrew Burnap, John Benjamin Hickey and Paul Hilton from the original Young Vic run.

In a five-star review of the original production for, Mark Shenton described the piece as ‘a play full of convincing feeling and legible fears, set in a landscape that embraces both the privileged and the dispossessed’.

The Inheritance Tickets are available now.
