The Inheritance: Part 1 Tickets
Following a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run at the Young Vic, Matthew Lopez’s major two-part world premiere The Inheritance lands in London's West End for just fifteen weeks. Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, this ‘monumental and transcendent' (Time Out) production questions how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us.
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?
Stephen Daldry's ‘remarkably involving production’ (Independent) 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 interlinking lives, The Inheritance is ‘an exquisitely truthful and funny modern classic’ (Telegraph) that brilliantly transposes EM Forster’s novel ‘Howards End’ to 21st century New York.

What’s closing in London Theatre this month (January 2019)
Another year has flown by! Like many, it will probably take some getting used to before you start writing 2019 instead of 2018. That being said, the new year means that many of the West End's most popular shows will be packing their bags and heading out of town. This is the final curtain call! Make a New Year’s Resolution that you know you can keep and see one of these spectacular London shows before they close indefinitely!
