NT Live: The Lehman Trilogy

Sunday, Jul 28, 1:00 pm

The Lehman Trilogy

by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power
directed by Sam Mendes

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, 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.

This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.

Advance tickets: $18 adults, $16 seniors, $14 students and children + applicable fees. Lincoln Theatre Members receive $2 off. 10% discount for the purchase of 4 or more productions in the 2019-20 season.
