Winner of the 2020 Tony Award for Best Play. Winner of the 2020 Drama Desk Award for Best Play. Winner of the 2019 Olivier Award for Best Play. Decades after the height of the AIDS epidemic, The Inheritance tells 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. Inspired by E.M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End, The Inheritance is an epic examination of survival, healing, class divide, and what it means to call a place home.

The Inheritance is a sweeping gay epic told in 2 parts. Part One will play the weekends of May 5th through May 8th and May 12th through May 14th. Part Two will play May 19th through May 22nd. Then both parts will play in repertory from May 26 through June 11 with Part One playing on Friday nights at 8pm, Part Two playing on Saturday nights at 8pm and both parts playing on Sundays (May 28, June 3, June 10) with Part One at 2pm and Part Two at 7pm.
