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. Joined by his two brothers, it is the beginning of an American epic — 163 years later, the firm they established, Lehman Brothers, collapses into bankruptcy and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.
A story told in three parts on a single evening, this live taping of the National Theatre production of a play by Stefano Massini and adapted by Ben Power is directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes.
