Piccadilly Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, and a forthcoming season at New York’s Park Avenue Armoury, Sam Mendes (Skyfall, King Lear) acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy will open at London’s Piccadilly Theatre in 2019.

Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles reprise their roles as the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons in Ben Power’s English version of Stefano Massini’s vast and poetic play, The Lehman Trilogy

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

The Lehman Trilogy will run from 11 May 2019 until 31 August 2019 at the Piccadilly Theatre, London.


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.


The cast is led by Simon Russell Beale (described by The Independent as “the greatest stage actor of his generation“), Adam Godley (Private Lives, Rain Man), and Ben Miles (The Crown, Coupling, Wolf Hall).


Directed by Sam Mendes with set design by Es Devlin, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, video design by Luke Halls, lighting design by Jon Clark, and music and sound design by Nick Powell. The music director is Candida Caldicot, with movement by Polly Bennett.
