The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions' THE LEHMAN TRILOGY makes a triumphant return to the West End!

Overview

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.

Directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award® and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy features a cast of three playing the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of story-telling told in three parts on a single evening. The decades unfold on stage within the cinematic sweep of Tony Award®-winning designer Es Devlin's 'slowly rotating masterpiece.' (Variety).

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.

Critic reviews

It lets capitalism off the hook but there is a great deal to enjoy from Sam Mendes’ deceptively simple, pared back production

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor (From 2019)

A bankably brilliant theatrical experience

· The Telegraph (From 2019)

The chemistry between the three actors is superb – Miles fierily assertive, Russell Beale ably negotiating the spectrum from whimsical to philosophical, Godley utterly inhabiting whichever role he takes on

· The Arts Desk (From 2019)

This is a long play, but the actors attack a dense script with such energy, humour and classical mastery that the drama canters weightlessly on through 174 years

· London Theatre (From 2019)

He Lehman Brothers is a symphony: powerful, authentic, and fascinating

· The Upcoming (From 2019)

Tale of Lehman Brothers’ collapse is a theatrical banker

· The Times (From 2019)
