Matthew Lopez’s stunning two-part play Tickets for The Inheritance come to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre.

Following a sell-out run at the Young Vic that had theatre critics glowing with praise and people clambering for tickets, The Inheritance is making its way to the Noel Coward Theatre. Matthew Lopez’s incredible masterpiece was inspired by E.M. Forster’s Howard’s End and is directed by two-time Olivier and two-time Tony award winning director Stephen Daldry.

Taking place in New York City a generation after the AIDS epidemic The Inheritance tells the story of what it is like to be a young gay man in this day and age by following a group of young gay men who are determined to succeed. What do we owe those who came before us, and those who will come after us?

Featuring the Tony, Olivier, Oscar, and Emmy winning actress Vanessa Redgrave, on stage in the West End for the first time in 7 years, The Inheritance stars Tony winner John Benjamin Hickey alongside Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Syrus Lowe, Michael Marcus, Kyle Soller and Michael Walters. 

This touching, engaging and hilarious show is presented in two parts and is intended to be viewed sequentially. Don’t forget to book your tickets to The Inheritance: Part 2 here

‘Glorious. Like immersing yourself in a great novel.’  The Times
‘Spellbinding. An extraordinary, epic event.’  Sunday Times

Incredibly moving and thought provoking look at the real life challenges faced by gay men. It makes you laugh, and cry, and feel. Highly recommended for all gay men and their supporters.

very talented cast and interesting story

Yvonne Ellis11th January

Loved the simplistic staging which drew your focus entirely onto the characters who were excellent in their unfolding of the story.

Jim Ensom11th January

One of the best I’ve ever seen. Outrageously funny, witty, tearful, moving (to tears). Great acting, masterful use of stage. Perfect!

Erdmann Kilian8th January

What an amazing play, incredible performance! A must see!

Sophie Saunderson6th January

An absorbing tale of vivid characters and their legacies. One of the best pieces of theatre I have seen over the last few years. The acting was nuanced and script used comedy to create a buzz while the characters, especially Eric, Morgan/Walter and Henry got me to see life with a new understanding. A delight!

AB, Central London4th January

A moving and noble attempt to record for posterity the experiences of gay men amongst a group of people from New York City spanning the pre-AIDS era to the present day including historical references to the life and influences of E M Forster. A moving and surreal scene ended the first part of this mammoth work: greeting the long dead friends of one of the newly deceased main characters, acted and staged to evoke Da Vinci's painting of the Last Supper.

David William Romanis Harland4th January

Good play, well acted. Slightly unnecessarily graphic on the gay stuff!!

Phil3rd January

Excellent on every level - writing, performance, direction. A riveting theater experience.
