THE INHERITANCE
a Regional Premiere!

Assistant Directed by Carter Edward Smith and Troy Lakey
Stage Managed by Jennifer Schmitz

About the Show:

“an openhearted American theatrical epic…capaciously moving…blisteringly alive…”
-The New York Times

Tony-Award Winner for Best Play! Presented in two parts, The Inheritance brilliantly transposes E.M. Forster’s novel Howards End to 21st-century New York. A generation after the peak of the AIDS crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other?  Award-winning playwright Matthew Lopez explores these and many other profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, ambitious New Yorkers in a work that has been hailed as “perhaps the most important American play of the century so far.”

Statement of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: 

Vintage Theatre gratefully acknowledges the original stewards of our location, the Native American Tribes of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho, on whose ancestral homes we gather.

We have been and will continue to be committed to including the voices of everyone within Vintage Theatre. We will manage Vintage Theatre in a manner that embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion, and to recognize and embrace underrepresented voices and viewpoints in a manner that honors their legacy, tradition, and future.
