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, AMERICAN BEAUTY) 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 broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
