Watching a West End show is #15 in our London Bucket List

Director: Stephen Daldry; Written by: Matthew Lopez

Matthew Lopez's two-part play The Inheritance transposes EM Forster's Howards End to 21st-century New York, and questions how much we really owe to those who lived and loved before us.

The two plays explore some profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious lives of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers.

What is it like to be a young gay man after the AIDs crisis? What legacy has been left by the previous generation? And what did they really owe the future anyway?

The Telegraph★★★★★ – "Perhaps the most important American play of the century" Evening Standard★★★★★ – "Witty, outrageous and piercingly vivid" Sunday Times★★★★★ – "An extraordinary epic event'"
