The Inheritance at the Noel Coward Theatre has been rightly lauded as a major piece of 21st-century theatre and Lopez has a gift for crafting argument and dialogue with sensitivity and innate understanding.
Stephen Daldry’s production of The Inheritance opens at the Noel Coward Theatre, following a successful run at the Young Vic earlier this year. Here’s what critics have said about it…
It would be hard to imagine a play about young gay lives that speaks more eloquently to older gay men than the moving, informative and often hilarious The Inheritance now transferred to the Noel Coward Theatre.
