Following a sold-out, critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre, the NT and Neal Street Productions’ ‘The Lehman Trilogy’ will open at the Piccadilly Theatre in May next year.
The show, which is directed by James Bond director Sam Mendes, spans three generations, 163 years and tells the captivating story of the real life American Dream. Speaking about the play, he said:
“The Lehman Trilogy was developed over three years without the constraint of a schedule, or even a destination – I was allowed time to find its form, and to build a wonderful team with which to make it […] I couldn’t be more excited to show it to New York audiences and to be extending our London life in the West End.”
What is The Lehman Trilogy about?
The year is 1844, and on a cold September morning, a young man and his two brothers arrive in New York from Bavaria, dreaming of what their lives could become. Jump forward almost two centuries, and the Lehman family has established one of America’s biggest companies, only for it to fall into bankruptcy, and trigger the largest financial crisis in history.
Returning to play the Lehman brothers in its West End staging will be Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles.
