NT LIVE: The Lehman Trilogy
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. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish â€“ Lehman Brothers â€“ spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play was recorded from Londonâ€™s West End as part of National Theatre Liveâ€™s 10th Birthday season.
