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.

In conversation with the iconic author MARGARET ATWOOD LIVE ON SCREEN
This September, the wait is over… the creative team behind NT Live offer audiences worldwide a new cinematic journey! The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed.
The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast filmed live, as Fane Productions presents an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.
The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.
‘Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.’
With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.
