The Lehman Trilogy Tickets

4.8 (23) · Classic Drama

A co-production with Neal Street Productions

“It lets capitalism off the hook but there is a great deal to enjoy from Sam Mendes’ deceptively simple, pared back production.”
“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 and on Broadway. Now it's back in London for a West End run.”

Overview

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.

Critic reviews

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

A bankably brilliant theatrical experience

· The Telegraph

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

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

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

· The Upcoming

Tale of Lehman Brothers’ collapse is a theatrical banker

· The Times
