Today The Young Vic has announced casting for The Inheritance, a major world premiere in two parts, with Vanessa Redgrave in the role of Margaret.
Joining Vanessa Redgrave are Andrew Burnap (Toby), John Benjamin Hickey (Henry), Samuel H. Levine (Adam/Leo) and Kyle Soller (Eric). The remaining cast is comprised of Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Hubert Burton, Syrus Lower, Michael Marcus, Luke Thallon and Michael Walters.
The Inheritance gives a panoramic view of gay life in New York City today, a generation after the height of the AIDS crisis.
Of those fears, that activism, the new communities and the new kinds of isolation, what has survived? And what does the experience of the plague years mean to the young, overflowing with life, looking for love?
Due to demand extra performances have been added.
This new play in two parts by Matthew Lopez is directed by Stephen Daldry
The Inheritance is at The Young Vic 2nd March – 19th May 2018.
