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 filmed live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season. ★★★★★ What an astonishing evening! Engrossing play and an acting masterclass. ~ Guardian. ★★★★★ Theatre at its best. Sam Mendes triumphs. ~ Times. ★★★★ Spectacular saga magnificently performed by Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles. ~ The Stage. Magnificent… a genuinely epic production. ~ New York Times
