The Inheritance (Parts One & Two)

by Matthew Lopez; August 3 – September 17, 2022

Directed by Lucian Restivo

In contemporary Manhattan, Eric and Toby are 30-somethings who seem to be very much 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 interlink and collide—with explosive results.
Brilliantly re-envisioning E.M. Forster’s masterpiece Howards End to 21st-century New York, The Inheritance asks how much we owe those who lived and loved before us, questions the role we must play for future generations, and dares us to fearlessly hold on to the wild ride called life.
Winner of Britain’s 2019 Olivier Award and the 2020 Tony Award for Best Play. This epic play — receiving its mid-Atlantic premiere at RTP — is a seven-hour spectacle spread over two performances, and is the perfect vehicle to launch our 30th Anniversary season.
Please note: you must purchase tickets to both Part One and Part Two in order to see the entire play.
