The Lehman Trilogy - NT Live

Broadcast from the programme National Theatre Live

Opening of the new season of NT Live broadcasts at the Rialto Theater with the magnificent performance The Lehman Trilogy by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power.

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening, broadcast from London’s West End. 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.
