The Inheritance Part 1 Tickets

    Witness a modern reimagining of E. M. Forster's masterpiece, set in contemporary New York. Follow the lives of 3 generations of gay men, as they attempt to find a community that accepts them, one that they can call home. Matthew Lopez’s endearing and emotional play has won critical acclaim from across the world, and wonderfully portrays what it feels to be a gay man in New York.

    Why Watch The Inheritance Part 1

    The author, Matthew Lopez, takes inspiration from E.M. Forster’s Howards End. Although the theme of homosexuality is very subtle in the original work, Lopez uses it as inspiration to bring forth this story of 3 English families. Lopez’s combination of the original plot with the hazy future of the homosexual community is seamless. Part One focuses on understanding the history of homosexuality and how it will shape the future. The story focuses on loss, love and the ever-present question of equality, in a world where understanding is prized as much as wealth and power. Lopez’s production is haunting and ambitious and has been hailed as one of the finest and most relevant works in recent years.

    Stephen Daldry, a 3-time Olivier Award and 2-time Tony Award winner is in charge of the direction. One of the best known English directors of theatre and film, he has had multiple feature films that have gone on to be nominated at the Academy Awards. Daldry’s direction wonderfully highlights the gripping storytelling and ensures that the audience is rooted to their seats. The conclusion is poignant, leaving you with anticipation for Lopez’s subsequent instalment.

    The play won the Olivier Awards for best new play and best director with almost universal critical acclaim. Lopez’s bold debate on gay culture is something that is a need of the hour, and he brings his touching production to life on one of the greatest stages in the world!

    The Story

    Eric Glass is an ideal and cultured gay man, who spends his time exploring the aisles of Strand Bookstore and watching arthouse films at the renowned Brooklyn Academy of Music. His partner, Toby, is a charming narcissist, who is constantly convincing Eric that the couple meets each other’s emotional needs. They have a bunch of common friends who flit in and out of Eric’s apartment. One of these is newcomer Adam. Adam is good-looking, well-connected and successful.

    Will Adam prove to be a catalyst for this world to crumble?
