You have to wonder why there isn't a word in the English language for the fireworks that go off in your brain when you finally kiss someone you've wanted for years. Or for the intimacy and tenderness you feel as you hold the hand of a suffering friend.

A generation after the height of the AIDS crisis, what is it like to be a young gay man in New York? How many words are there now for the different kinds of pain, the different kinds of love?

Matthew Lopez's The Inheritance premieres in two parts at the Young Vic Theatre, London, in March 2018.

Perhaps the most important American play of the century so far.
Daily Telegraph

Matthew Lopez's rhapsodic deep dive into the ties that bind the gay community to its past asks how to love, how to live and how to do those well, despite a legacy of damage. It's captivating.
The Times

Lopez has, in effect, written the great American novel as a stage play, and it allows him to double down on Forster's famous maxim: "Only connect!" He retains the individual empathy of literary fiction, taking us into his characters' inner lives, alongside the collective experience of public performance. a born-again classic descended from "Angels."
Variety

While Lopez's play has a literary framework, it teems with life and incident: watching it, as a neighbour remarked, is like bingewatching a box-set. It tells multiple stories.
Guardian

Witty, frequently outrageous and deeply moving.
