thescreen: NT Live The Lehman Trilogy Encore

Thursday, July 25, 2019 - 7:30pm

A Live Encore screening of The Lehman Trilogy by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power, directed by Sam Mendes
The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening. Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.
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. This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin (NT Live: Hamlet) filmed live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.
