Lehman Trilogy comes to town

Rob George 19th Jun, 2019

A STORY of the family and a company that changed the world – told in three parts on a single evening – will be beamed into Pershore Number 8 Community Arts Centre.

The Lehman Trilogy will be screened in the Vale direct from London’s Piccadilly Theatre on Thursday, July 25 from 7pm.

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.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons. Written by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power this acclaimed play features stunning set design from Es Devlin.
