Hailed by the New York Times as a ‘genuinely epic production’, The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world.

Written by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power and directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award® and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes (The Ferryman), with Tony Award®-winning set design by Es Devlin (The Crucible).

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, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.
