The Lehman Trilogy
By Stefano Massini, Adapted by Ben Power
Directed by Karen Azenberg
On a cold September morning in 1844, a Bavarian immigrant arrives in New York City, with his sights set on creating a new life in the new world. When his two brothers join his side, fates are sealed and a 163-year chain of events is set into motion as the family and company they form, Lehman Brothers, forever change the finance world. Told in three parts over the course of a single evening, The Lehman Trilogy is an American tale of epic proportions telling of the rise and fall of the fabled financiers.
