The Lehman Trilogy Transfers from the National Theatre to Piccadilly Theatre, London.
The director Sam Mendes (Skyfall, King Lear) returned to the National Theatre to direct Ben Power’s English version of Stefano Massini’s vast and poetic play, The Lehman Trilogy, a well received, popular production across Europe.
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.
The Guardian gave the play a five star review proclaiming “an astonishing evening! Engrossing play and an acting masterclass.”
CultureWhisper gave the NT show a four star review saying it was “colossal, absorbing and at times poetic”.
The Standard’s review by their theatre critic Henry Hitchings gave the show four stars, saying the three actors “slip in and out of a multitude of roles with impressive dexterity”.
The Lehman Trilogy is set for a 12 week run at the Piccadilly Theatre and tickets are now on sale, with the first show from 11 May 2019.
