Synopsis


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 'Howard's End' to 21st century New York.
