The remarkable West End play will play host to a special charity performance at the Noël Coward Theatre in support of the Terrence Higgins Trust.
Stephen Daldry’s remarkably involving production explores profound themes through the turbulent and often hilarious experiences of a group of young, gay New Yorkers. What is the legacy left to them by previous generations? What do they owe the future and each other?
Matthew Lopez’s masterpiece LGBTQ play transferred rom The Young Vic to the heart of Theatreland last month to rave reviews.
The Inheritance Terrence Higgins Trust performance plays on Saturday 1st December 2019, beginning at 1:15pm.
Speaking about why she wanted to support World AIDS Day with this charity performance, Producer Sonia Friedman said: “In the 1980s I was a young stage manager working at The National Theatre. All around me, in our industry, people were dying and struggling and I just felt it was wrong,” she begins.
“I felt I had to do something. I went to the Terrence Higgins Trust, the AIDS charity, and asked if I could do something, if I could help.”
Explaining in further detail how she later helped produce a series of events for the charity, something that remains her most important work to-date.
“The work I did in the mid-late 80s for people with AIDS is without question the most important thing I have ever done in my life. It formed who I am and it made me a Producer. I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud than the world I did then.”
