The Lehman Trilogy
by
Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power
directed by Sam Mendes
The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single
evening.
Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons. On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. This critically acclaimed and five - time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set
design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
Broadcast live to cinemas from the Piccadilly Theatre
Running time: 210 mins, with 2 intervals
