The Inheritance Part 2
In 2020, Matthew López became the first Latino playwright to win the Tony Award for best play. Presented in two parts, The Inheritance follows the interlinking lives of three generations of gay men searching for a community of their own–and a place to call home.
In contemporary Manhattan, Eric and Toby are 30-somethings who are 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.
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.
Having presented Part 1 as the finale to its previous season, the Austin premiere of The Inheritance Part 2 opens the 2022-23 season at the ZACH Theatre, Sep. 14 – Oct. 9, 2022.
