2019 Olivier Award Winner for Best Play! Interweaving lives and spanning generations, The Inheritance brilliantly transposes E.M. Forster’s novel Howards End to 21st century New York. A generation after the peak of the AIDS crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other? Award-winning playwright Matthew Lopez explores these and many other profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers in a work that has been hailed as “perhaps the most important American play of the century so far.” (The Telegraph – UK)
