The show received terrific notices from the popular press when it opened in April 2006 : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Atmospheric, exquisitely acted production, a great family drama of the British 20th century." RHODA KOENIG for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Splendidly crisp and wonderfully cast production." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Often funny." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "well-upholstered play and the acting has the in-depth quality of the National at its best...a first-rate evening." CHARLES SPENCER for DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Wonderfully rich and satisfying play...This is a great play that finds the National at the top of its game."

The Voysey Inheritance returns with most of the original cast: Lucy Briers (Honor Voysey), Julian Glover (Mr Voysey), Martin Hutson (Hugh Voysey), Dominic West (Edward Voysey ) , Andrew Woodall (Major Booth Voysey), Doreen Mantle (Mrs Voysey), Mark Tandy (Trenchard Voysey)

Directed by Peter Gill, lighting by Hartley T A Kemp , design by Alison Chitty.

Edward’s highly principled world upturns when his father reveals that he has been illegally speculating with clients’ money. To make matters worse, he soon discovers his large, scandal-fearing family would perpetuate the crime rather than risk public dishonour. And it’s to Edward they look.

Looking for the best seats...
