Get to know the story of The Inheritance, the cast and creatives with our Show Breakdown.
Based loosely on Howard’s End, the play is an exploration of love and loyalty, a generation after the destructive AIDS crisis in New York. It follows three generations of gay men and explores the conversation between them around sex, love and navigating the two in modern society.
There are both new and familiar faces in the cast of The Inheritance. Vanessa Redgrave and John Benjamin Hickey, star of The Big C, will appear with Hugo Bolton, Andrew Burnap, Syrus Lowe and Kyle Soller. Check out a few of the cast members in the rehearsal room:
Matthew Lopez is the writer of The Inheritance, having garnered critical acclaim for his previous plays, The Legend of Georgia McBride and The Whipping Man. A gay man himself, his exploration of the gay community in New York comes from an emotional and personal place for Matthew.
Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) will be directing The Inheritance, returning to the West End after taking a break to work on the stunning Netflix drama series, The Crown. If that weren’t exciting enough, he’s also currently attached to the film adaptation of the musical Wicked! An acclaimed director of TV, film and theatre, fans of Stephen’s work will love The Inheritance.
