“This 3hr 20min epic charts the story of Lehman Brothers, from its nineteenth century foundation by three Bavarian immigrants to its infamous collapse in 2007. With all-star director Sam Mendes in charge, this was a massive hit at the National Theatre, is currently in New York and is returning to London in May for its West End run.”
A co-production with Neal Street Productions
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 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.
