PREVIEW: The Inheritance, Noel Coward Theatre

Producers Sonia Friedman and Nattering Way have announced that Stephen Daldry’s production will transfer to the Noel Coward Theatre including the majority of the Young Vic’s original cast.

A generation after the peak of the AIDs crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? How many words are there now for pain and for love? Matthew Lopez’s major new two-part play explores profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers.  What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other?
