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 established - 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 designs 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.
