National Theatre Live: The Lehman Trilogy

★★★★★ ‘Astonishing… an acting masterclass’ – The Guardian

★★★★★ ‘Theatre at its best… Sam Mendes triumphs’ – Daily Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Absorbingly performed… A trio of performances you can bank on’ – Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘An epic piece of storytelling’ – Time Out

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, American Beauty, 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.

FEATURING Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, Ben Miles, Ravi Aujla, Candida Caldicot, Gillian Berkowitz.
