Kyle Soller and more join The Inheritance in Noël Coward Theatre transfer

Thursday, 17th May 2018  

Much of the news recently has concerned ongoing shows in the capital, with both Wicked and Les Misérables changing their casts and other productions either extending their booking periods or coming to a close.

Today we move on to news of a different kind as it emerges that The Inheritance, Matthew Lopez’s two-part play currently running at the Young Vic Theatre, will be headed to the Noël Coward Theatre in London’s West End from September. The show is directed by Stephen Daldry and produced by both Sonia Friedman and Nattering Way.

Many of the cast members will be making the journey from the Young Vic in Lambeth to the Noël Coward Theatre on St Martin’s Lane, including Kyle Soller, who plays the character of Eric.

Set in New York, Eric is one of many characters facing a new world after the height of the AIDS epidemic. He is a young, gay, Jewish man and his story intersects with many others as their experiences are explored and their options considered.

Soller has been playing the role of Eric at the Young Vic Theatre and it is one of many roles upon which he has embarked in recent years. His other credits include Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre in 2016, Edward II at the National in 2013, Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the Apollo Theatre in 2012 and The Faith Machine at the Royal Court Theatre in 2011, to name but a few. Regular visitors to the Young Vic might also recognise him from roles in The Government Inspector and The Glass Menagerie.

He isn’t alone in making the transfer from the Young Vic to the West End, with fellow cast members joining him like Hugo Bolton, Robert Boulter, Andrew Burnap, Hubert Burton, John Benjamin Hickley, Paul Hilton, Samuel H Levine, Syrud Lowe, Michael Marcus and Michael Walters. Vanessa Redgrave also appears in the production.

Matthew Lopez’s The Inheritance runs at the Noël Coward Theatre from Friday 21st September 2018 to Saturday 5th January 2019.
