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.

Sam Mendes (Skyfall, King Lear) returned to the National Theatre to direct Ben Power's English version of Stefano Massini’s vast and poetic play, which was a hit across Europe, with Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles playing the Lehman Brothers, their sons and their grandsons.

The story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening. 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.

From 5 August, Dominik Tiefenthaler will play the role of Emanuel Lehman alongside Simon Russell Beale and Adam Godley.

No hesitation in giving this show 5 stars. Th e play takes place in a cube. There are only 3 actors in this play and they are all superb. But special to Simon Russell Beale.

Brilliant..... highly recommended and completely lived up to the recommendation. The experience starts as an admiration of a stunning set and a curiosity as to how the story will unfold, and by the second act has one completely enfolded in the story and characters with hardly an awareness that there are only three actors in a cast of many ..... wonderful story telling!

My wife and I deliberately didn’t know what to expect from The Lehman Trilogy. Obviously we were both aware of what had happened to Lehman’s Bank. Overall we found the play very interesting and extremely well scripted. The acting from all three actors was absolutely superb. How they remembered all the lines is beyond us. They were each brilliant and every single character they played we believed them. The set was very cleverly put to use and didn’t need anything else. It is the longest play we’ve sat through, but truly the time flew by. Absolutely excellent
