The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.
The Lehman Trilogy weaves through nearly two centuries of Lehman lineage. 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.
Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles play the Lehman Brothers, and a cast of characters including their sons and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of storytelling.
The Lehman Trilogy features set designs by Es Devlin, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, video design by Luke Halls, lighting design by Jon Clark, and music and sound design by Nick Powell.
The music director is Candida Caldicot, with movement by Polly Bennett.
