The Lehman Trilogy

The Lehman Trilogy

Piccadilly Theatre · 11 MAY - 03 AUG

A co-production with Neal Street Productions

“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.”


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.
