Updated on March 2, 2022: The Lehman Trilogy—originally scheduled to perform at American Conservatory Theater’s Geary Theater from April 20–May 22, 2022—has been postponed to a future date.
A.C.T. presents the National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ international theatrical sensation, The Lehman Trilogy. Written by Stefano Massini, adapted by Olivier Award–nominated Ben Power and directed by multiple Olivier Award, Tony Award, and Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Cabaret, The Ferryman, Skyfall, 1917), The Lehman Trilogy is the epic story of a family and a company that changed the world.
On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside dreaming of a new life. He is soon joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins with a small store in Alabama. One hundred and sixty-three years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy and triggers the largest financial crisis in history. Told in three epic parts over one evening, The Lehman Trilogy is a modern theatrical classic.
