The Lehman Trilogy

Imagine this. You arrive in New York in September 1844, fresh from Bavaria and inspired by the USA’s potential. Your brothers arrive shortly afterwards. You set up a new bank together, naming it after your family. 163 years later the entire edifice collapses, driving a global recession that’s still impacting us to this day.

This is The Lehman Trilogy, a three hour and twenty minute production detailing the story of the bank at the heart of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions are proud to present The Lehman Trilogy, a production that’s making a triumphant return to Theatreland following an acclaimed season in Los Angeles and an equally popular run on Broadway.

This play has won 5 Tony Awards including Best Play. It’s directed by the Academy Award, Tony Award and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes. A cast of three actors plays the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons. A true story told in three parts on one amazing evening, it has been lauded by the New York Times as 'a genuinely epic production'. Don’t miss the tale of one family and the business that helped drive the world deep into recession. The venue is the Gillian Lynne Theatre and the show is booking from 24th January 2023 to 20th May 2023.

What to expect








Young Couples:

Pros: Good writing / storytelling. Interesting genre in terms of how it's made. Didn't get boring. Cons: No real dialogue. It's 3 men one stage telling a story and occasionally pretending to be one of the characters in the story. There is no costume change and the set is just a rotating room with stuff projected on a screen behind. I expected more.

Must See
Superb production … highly recommend. Definitely does not feel like 3 hrs 20 mins! Recommend ordering drinks for the interval.

Very good for the first two acts, perhaps a little confusing in the conclusion. However, the acting was brilliant and well worth the investment
