The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions present:
The Lehman Trilogy
By Stefano Massini
Adapted by Ben Power
Directed by Sam Mendes
Directed by Academy Award, Tony and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.
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 soon 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.
