Inheritance

Matthew Lopez’s acclaimed two-part play gives a panoramic view of gay life in New York City.

The Inheritance is a brilliant re-envisioning of E. M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End to contemporary New York. The Inheritance follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own – and a place to call home. Profoundly touching and wickedly hilarious, Matthew Lopez’s highly anticipated two-part play asks how much we owe to those who lived and loved before us, and questions the role we must play for future generations.

Performances at the Ethyl Barrymore Theatre, 243 W 47th St. NYC. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.
