Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, the NT and Neal Street Productions' critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy transfers to the West End for 12 weeks only. Sam Mendes (The Ferryman, Skyfall) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who reprise their acclaimed roles as the Lehman Brothers, and 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.
Told in three parts on a single evening, The Lehman Trilogy is a story of a family and a company that changed the world.
