The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ The Lehman Trilogy makes a triumphant return to London following an acclaimed season in Los Angeles and a highly lauded run on Broadway, winning 5 Tony Awards® including Best Play. Directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award® and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy features a cast of three playing the Lehman  brothers, their sons and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of story-telling told in three parts on a single evening. Hailed by The New York Times as 'a genuinely epic production', The Lehman Trilogy is the story of a family and a company that changed the world.


Starring Michael Balogun playing Emanuel Lehman, Hadley Fraser playing Mayer Lehman, and Nigel Lindsay playing Henry Lehman.


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.

    We saw Lehman Trilogy on Broadway a few years ago and were delighted.This version was every bit as wonderful. Bravo!

    This was very clever with one set and many characters. Story was interesting although some of it could have been told in a shortened version. Amazing actors and the insight into where it all began.

    We thoroughly enjoyed TLT yesterday but found it a little long and felt the first Act could have been slightly shorter. Nevertheless brilliantly acted and a very clever production.
