'The Inheritance' opens on the West End

Oct 15, 2018

The Inheritance, associate directed by Justin Martin, opened at the Noël Coward Theatre on Saturday 13th October.

Written by Matthew Lopez, The Inheritance is a two-part play exploring gay life in New York City in the post-AIDS generation. Vanessa Redgrave and Jack Riddiford are starring. The Inheritance transferred to the West End following a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run at the Young Vic earlier this year. 

Justin worked as Assistant Director on The Crown series 1 and 2 and co-directed The Jungle which ran at the Young Vic to a wave of five star reviews. Justin was also the associate director on the critically acclaimed Skylight at the Wyndham’s Theatre and The Audience at the Gielgud Theatre, both of which he transferred to Broadway in 2015.

Reviews for the Noël Coward run:

★★★★★  "A work of rare grace, truth and beauty. Here is the play of this year and last year and quite possibly next year as well."  Evening Standard

★★★★★ "This is the sort of exciting, engrossing theatre that makes you wonder why people bother with Netflix." What's On Stage

★★★★★ "Its depth of feeling is exhibited both in the writing and direction that penetrates deep into the souls of its characters and in turn of the audience." London Theatre

The Inheritance will be on stage at the Noël Coward until January 19th 2019. Book your tickets here
