Gay-themed play The Inheritance has been nominated for Olivier Awards 8 times


The acclaimed drama, penned by Matthew Lopez and directed by Billy Elliot‘s Stephen Daldry, is up for best new play, while Daldry is nominated for best director, the leading actor Kyle Soller is nominated for best actor and Vanessa Redgrave has landed a nomination for best actress in a supporting role. The show is also nominated for best lighting design, best sound design, best set design and outstanding achievement in music, bringing its total number of Olivier Awards nominations to eight. The play follows the lives of a few gay men living in New York City. The play has already scooped best play at the Evening Standard Theater Awards in November, and picked up three awards at the 2019 Critics’ Circle Awards. Speaking to The Telegraph in October about the play, Lopez said that the goal was to create connection between the elderly generation and the youth within the queer community. The show’s West End run ended on January 19, but Soller previously hinted at a potential Broadway transfer.
