Event Details

THE BENT, Palm Springs Premier LGBTQ+ Theatre Company presents The Inheritance Part 1 by Matthew Lopez on April 26 - May 12, 2024.

The Bent is thrilled to present THE INHERITANCE (PART 1) which The Daily Telegraph called “perhaps the most important American play of the century.” It won the 2020 Tony Award for Best Play. 

Decades after the AIDS epidemic, three generations of gay men grapple with the tragedy of their past and what it means for their future. Eric is a New York City lawyer trying to keep his family’s apartment; his boyfriend, Toby is a successful but abrasive writer, living in a state of denial. From there, a web of touching and heartbreaking stories unfold, remembering the dead and calling on the living to keep looking forward. Inspired by E.M. Forster’s HOWARD’S END, THE INHERITANCE is a fearless examination of survival, healing, class divide, and what it means to call a place home. 

As with ANGELS IN AMERICA, this epic story is told in two parts. THE INHERITANCE (PART 2) will be the opening play for The Bent’s 2024-2025 Season. 

Jim Albright & Tom Peterson are the producing sponsors for THE INHERITANCE (Part 1)
