The landmark National Theatre and Neal Street production of The Lehman Trilogy, directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award®, and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, returns to the Gillian Lynne Theatre for a strictly limited encore season this autumn. Hailed by The New York Times as ‘a genuinely epic production’, The Lehman Trilogyis a sweeping story of a family spanning generations and a company that changed the world.

John Heffernan,Aaron Krohn and Howard W. Overshown bring their ‘virtuosic performances’ (The Mercury News) to London, following a critically acclaimed run in San Francisco, playing the Lehman brothers, their sons and grandsons in this thrilling ‘tour de force of acting talent.’ (KQED Radio)

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, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.
