James Graham’s latest history play has an eye on the present but a messy staging.
After a scorching run at the Young Vic, Matthew Lopez’s The Inheritance makes a well-deserved transfer into the West End.
Full casting has been announced for the highly-anticipated West End transfer of the Young Vic production of The Inheritance, the new play by Matthew Lopez which will run for a strictly limited season, previewing at the Noël Coward Theatre from 21 September 2018 and opening on 13 October.
Directed by multi Olivier Award winner Stephen Daldry, the Young Vic production of The Inheritance by Matthew Lopez will transfer to the West End, playing a limited season at the Nöel Coward Theatre from 21 September 2018 (opening on 13 October).
The Inheritance is a brave and epic piece of new writing from Matthew Lopez, taking a scalpel to contemporary gay life in New York, asking what does it mean to be a gay man today and just how much of that is owed to an inherited (and neglected) cultural legacy.
Modern-dress revival of wordy George Bernard Shaw classic is a tour de force for Gemma Arterton.
Through the trial and its aftermath, the production soars, mainly on the strength of Arterton’s superlative performance. A woman alone, literally so in this all-male company.
