NT Live Screening – The Lehman Trilogy
Thu 25th Jul 2019
The Lehman Trilogy by Sam Mendes, Thursday 25th July, 7.00pm.
The story of a family company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening. Academy Award-winning Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons. In 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside with his brothers and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish, Lehman Brothers, spectacularly collapses in bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crash in history. This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play, which features a stunning set design from Ed Devlin , is broadcast as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
(3hr20min) Tickets on Sale from 28th June.
