‘Magnificent. A genuinely epic production.’
(The New York Times)
Following an acclaimed Broadway run, the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ The Lehman Trilogy tours to Los Angeles and San Francisco for a limited engagement this spring.
The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening. Sam Mendes directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Adrian Lester 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.
Hailed as "theatre at its best" (The Times) and "an acting masterclass" (The Guardian), don’t miss this extraordinary feat of storytelling.
