National Theatre Live: The Lehman Trilogy
By Stefano Massini
Adapted by Ben Power
Directed by Sam Mendes

Sunday, November 24 at 2pm
Josephine Louis Theater
20 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston

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.
