Description

National Theatre Live is presented in partnership with the Englert Theatre.
Sponsored by M.C. Ginsberg.

"Astonishing. An acting masterclass." - Guardian

"Spectacular. Magnificently performed." - The Stage

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

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 (National Theatre Live's Hamlet) and will be recorded live at London's West End.
