Production images have been released for the West End run of The Inheritance, currently in previews at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Directed by Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, this production of Matthew Lopez’s play had its world premiere at the Young Vic Theatre earlier this year.
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?
Spanning generations and many interlinking lives, The Inheritance brilliantly transposes EM Forster’s novel ‘Howards End’ to 21st century New York.
Presented in the West End by Sonia Friedman, Tom Kirdahy and Hunter Arnold, the cast for the West End run of the production includes: Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, John Benjamin Hickey, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Syrus Lowe, Michael Marcus, Vanessa Redgrave, Jack Riddiford, Kyle Soller and Michael Walters.
The production includes: set and costumes by Bob Crowley, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Paul Arditti & Christopher Reid and music by Paul Englishby. David Lan, who programmed the original production as Artistic Director of the Young Vic, is Executive Producer for the West End production.
