We’ve been blown away with the brilliant responses to the first few previews of Part 1 & 2 of The Inheritance.
Inspired by the novel ‘Howards End’ by E.M. Forster, The Inheritance asks what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? This hilarious and profound heart-breaker runs at the Young Vic until 19 May.
See what audiences have been saying on social media and book your tickets now.
You know as a writer when you see a play that says everything you have been trying to say but better and makes you want to throw out everything you’ve ever written. Yeah that. #theinheritance #part1 @youngvictheatre brilliant.

The Inheritance Pt1 @youngvictheatre is hands down the best work I have ever seen on stage. I urge you to get tickets – especially because you get to see @SyrusLoweDown smash it 👏 a touching, slick and above all illuminating piece of work – hungry for Pt2!

@youngvictheatre #theinheritance. A high watermark in a long run of exemplary theatre ventures. I’ve been coming to this theatre since 1983. This was another memorable occasion crafted by skilled practitioners. Funny, sad, poetic, lively and charismatic.

Lengthy and deserved standing ovation for the deeply moving and thought provoking #theinheritance at @youngvictheatre. I have seen both parts and I have to admit crying in both but blabbing in the second. #thankyou

I’ve seen hundreds of plays and #TheInheritance @youngvictheatre is simply one of the very best I’ve ever experienced – comparisons with Angels in America are wholly justified; and what an utter treat when Vanessa Redgrave graced the stage, joining a superlative cast

Extraordinary night @youngvictheatre #TheInheritance – pure brilliance on every level. Exquisite – entire audience on their feet cheering and weeping at only second preview. It should get every award out there. Stephen Daldry is a genius – beautiful play Matthew Lopez. Thank you.

Part 2 is possibly superior, as it cashes in on all the character work and setup of part 1 (which is also great).
Energetic, moving, funny, fresh.
Standing ovation and sniffles all over the shop.
Well done to all involved! @youngvictheatre #theinheritance 2/2

#TheInheritance @youngvictheatre was one of the best plays I’ve seen this century – I laughed, I cried, and felt profoundly moved – and I havent seen a production of such directorial clarity since Robert Icke’s Oresteia pic.twitter.com/PLYtsPtRAD

#Theatre Part 1 #TheInheritance @youngvictheatre. Inspired by #EMForster‘s Howard’s End. Young #gay men in New York, pre and post #AIDS. Beautiful storytelling, superb nuanced performances, and clever writing, interweaving the Howard’s End story. I was absorbed. A masterpiece. pic.twitter.com/kCqXT41nNF
