by Matthew López
Inspired by Howards End by E.M. Forster
Directed by Joe Wilson, Jr.
Part 1: September 1, 2022 – November 6, 2022

What do we owe to those who came before, and what will we leave behind? 

Please Note: The Inheritance Part 1 and The Inheritance Part 2 are presented as two separate productions.

The Inheritance weaves together the story of three generations of gay men in New York City attempting to forge a future for themselves amid a turbulent and changing America, decades after the height of the AIDS epidemic. Eric Glass is a political activist engaged to his writer boyfriend, Toby Darling. When two strangers enter their lives—one older and one younger— their plans for marriage come to a screeching halt as they veer in opposite directions into uncharted waters. This fascinating and epic two-part drama is inspired by E.M. Forster’s classic Howards End, and received the 2020 Tony Award for Best Play and the 2019 Olivier Award for Best Play.
