THE HEIRESS is the story of Catherine Sloper, the shy and sheltered daughter of a prominent New Yorker. Caught between the demands of an emotionally distant father and the attentions of a passionate young suitor, Catherine must navigate the terrain of love and regret, desire and duty, a chance for happiness and the burden of fortune…as only an heiress can.

Jessica Chastain (Golden Globe Winner: Zero Dark Thirty, Academy Award® nominee for Zero Dark Thirty, The Help) made her Broadway debut alongside David Strathairn (Academy Award® nominee for Good Night, and Good Luck), Dan Stevens (SAG Award winner for Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey) and Judith Ivey (two-time Tony Award® winner), in the Tony Award®-winning play, THE HEIRESS. Written by Ruth and Augustus Goetz and directed by Tony Award®-nominated playwright and director Moisés Kaufman, this compelling drama ran for an 18-week limited engagement.

The world of THE HEIRESS was brought to life by a dynamic design team that included two-time Tony Award® winner Derek McLane (sets), two-time Academy Award® winner Albert Wolsky (costumes), Tony Award® nominee David Lander (lighting), Tony Award® nominee Leon Rothenberg (sound design) and original music by Peter Golub.
