St Nicholas Street
THE LEHMAN TRILOGY
By Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power
Directed by Sam Mendes
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 – a family and a company that changed the world.
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). It is an Encore screening recorded live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10thBirthday season.
