Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, the NT and Neal Street Productions’ critically acclaimed The Lehman Trilogy will transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre in May 2019.
Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles will reprise the roles they originated at the National Theatre in The Lehman Trilogy by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power and directed by Sam Mendes, when it transfers to the West End from 11 May 2019, for a limited 12-week season at the Piccadilly Theatre.
Tickets for the transfer go on sale to the public from 2 November following a members’ booking period. The Lehman Trilogy is produced in the West End by the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions.
The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.
Directed by Sam Mendes (The Ferryman, Skyfall), The Lehman Trilogy weaves through nearly two centuries of Lehman lineage. 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. Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles play the Lehman Brothers, and a cast of characters including their sons and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of storytelling.
