The Inheritance Part 2
A Canadian Stage Production
Written By Matthew López
Directed by Brendan Healy
An epic new play, generations in the making
The Inheritance reimagines E.M. Forster’s Howards End as a contemporary portrait of the generation after the height of the AIDS crisis.
In contemporary Manhattan, Eric and Toby are 30-somethings who seem to be in love and thriving. But on the cusp of their engagement, they meet an older man haunted by the past and a younger man hungry for a future. Chance meetings lead to surprising choices as the lives of three generations collide—with explosive results.
Sweeping the 2020 Tony Awards, The Inheritance is a modern masterpiece presented in two parts.
