The world premiere of Matthew Lopez’s The Inheritance officially opened at the Young Vic March 28. The Young Vic production, directed by Stephen Daldry, features a cast that includes Vanessa Redgrave and Tony winner John Benjamin Hickey.

The two-part play explores the young gay community in New York a generation after the AIDS crisis of the ‘80s and ‘90s—and the struggle to connect to the past and maintain a sense of history.

The company also includes Andrew Burnap, Samuel H. Levine, Kyle Soller, Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Hubert Burton, Syrus Lower, Michael Marcus, Luke Thallon, and Michael Walters.
