NT Live: The Lehman Trilogy (12A)

NT Live: The Lehman Trilogy


By Stefano Massini

Adapted by Ben Power

Directed by Sam Mendes

'An astonishing acting masterclass'  Guardian

This smash-hit stage play will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season. The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening. It returns to the UK following a sold-out run at the National Theatre and Broadway and has been nominated for five Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Director for Sam Mendes (Skyfall), Best Actor - joint nomination for Adam Godley, Ben Miles and Simon Russell Beale (who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons) as well as Best Set Design for Es Devlin.

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.
