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 (you can book tickets for the run here).

In addition, this critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play, with stunning set design from Es Devlin, will be broadcast live from the West End on 25 July 2019 as part of National Theatre Live's 10th Birthday season.

Tickets will be on sale soon.


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.
