About this show

It begins with a gathering of young, gay New Yorkers. Each has a story aching to come out…

Profoundly touching and wickedly hilarious, Matthew Lopez's highly-anticipated two-part play, The Inheritance, asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and questions the role we must play for future generations.

Brilliantly re-envisioning E.M. Forster's masterpiece Howards End to 21st-century New York, it follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own — and a place to call home.

This epic new play by Matthew Lopez marks the Broadway debut of a bold new voice in American theatre, directed by visionary two-time Tony Award winner Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot). The Inheritance is a life-affirming journey of tears and laughter, through conflicts and connections, heartbreak, and hope. A new play, generations in the making.

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10am on June 24.
