The story of a family and a company that changed the world .

THE LEHMAN TRILOGY

Screening: Sat 31 August 


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 filmed live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
