The Lehman Trilogy Tickets

Gillian Lynne Theatre

After huge success on Broadway, this epic drama about a family business that changed the world returns to the West End.

The award-winning epic returns

After an acclaimed season on Broadway, award-winning epic The Lehman Trilogy returns to London, chronicling the triumphs and decline of the Lehman Brothers financial services firm.

In 1844, a young Jewish man named Henry Lehman arrived in New York and laid the foundations of a powerful banking company. Starting out with a small shop in Alabama, Henry and his brothers reached for the American Dream and secured a dynasty. 163 years later, Lehman Brothers collapsed into bankruptcy and triggered the 2008 financial crash.

Playing out in three parts over a single evening, The Lehman Trilogy play is written by Italian playwright Stefano Massini and translated into English by Ben Power. It was nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Play and Best Actor and later transferred to Broadway, where it was awarded Best Play at the 2022 Tony Awards.

Zoé Ford Burnett directs The Lehman Brothers West End cast - Michael Balogun (Death of England: Delroy) as Emanuel Lehman, Hadley Fraser (City of Angels) as Mayer Lehman, and Nigel Lindsay (Woman In Mind) as Henry Lehman.

Book The Lehman Brothers tickets for a second chance to experience this expansive, intimate and compelling story about a family that changed the world.

It's good. The acting and the script are magnificent. I don't give if 5 stars just because it's quite a specific format to me. There's only 3 actors and they tell the whole story which is spread from mid-1800s to 2008. There's no costumes change or d Read more
