About the Show
Stefano Massini's epic drama charting the rise and fall of the infamous investment firm Lehman Brothers.
New York, 1844: a young Bavarian man stands on the dockside dreaming of a better life in a new world. Along with his two brothers, they begin a company that changes the face of finance. 163 years later, the company collapses, sparking a global panic and subsequent economic crash. 'The Lehman Trilogy' follows the epic history of the heavyweight banking family.
This Tony Award-winning production is directed by Olivier and Tony Award winner Sam Mendes and returns to London after its initial run at the National Theatre in 2018, and its first West End run at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2019.
“Multigenerational family drama are ten a penny, but ‘The Lehman Trilogy’ is something more, a rare, true, virtuosic look at the entire lifecycle of a family business, burning its way indelibly through history.”
“Capping it all is the ability of the actors to bring out the intricate...They’re just messing around with a few stacking boxes, a few pairs of glasses, a few silly voices, and somehow it turns into a production of colossal elegance.”
