The Inheritance has won Best Play at the 74th Annual Tony Awards. The play premiered in London at the Young Vic in 2018, and opened on Broadway in 2019 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

The Inheritance’s Broadway cast included Olivier Award winner Kyle Soller, Tony Award nominee Andrew Burnap, Samuel H. Levine, Tony Award nominee Paul Hilton, Tony Award Winner John Benjamin Hickey, Kyle Harris, Jonathan Burke, Carson McCalley, Jordan Barbour, Darryl Gene Daughtry Jr., Dylan Frederick, Arturo Luís Soria, and Tony Award nominee Lois Smith.

The Inheritance was written by Tony Award nominee Matthew Lopez, directed by Olivier and Tony Award winner Stephen Daldry, featured scenic and costume design by Olivier and Tony Award winner Bob Crowley, lighting design by Tony Award nominee Jon Clark, co-sound design by Olivier and Tony Award winner Paul Arditti and Tony Award nominee Christopher Reid, original music by Emmy Award winner Paul Englishby. 

The Inheritance is a brilliant retelling of E.M. Forster’s masterpiece Howard’s End, set in 21st-century New York. The play 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.
