Hot from London, plumed in accolades—including the Olivier Award for Best New Play—Matthew Lopez’s The Inheritance is loosely based on E. M. Forster’s novel Howard’s End. The scope is epic, and the subject is gay life, specifically the generation after the AIDS/HIV crises of the 80s and 90s. Like Angels in America, this seven-hour play must be seen in two parts. —L.J.
