Lehman Trilogy

Thursday, Jul 25, 2019 at 2:00pm


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.

Time: 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM
