★★★★★ "What an astonishing evening! Engrossing play and an acting masterclass." - Guardian

★★★★★ "Theatre at its best. Sam Mendes triumphs." - Times

★★★★ "Spectacular saga magnificently performed by Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles. " - The Stage

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) and will be broadcast live from London's West End as part of National Theatre Live's 10th Birthday season.
