ABOUT THE SHOW
Written by Stefano Massini and adapted into English by Ben Power, "THE LEHMAN TRILOGY" is an epic and timely story of family, ambition, and risk, sprawling across 163 years of history and shining a calculating spotlight on the spectacular rise and fall of Lehman Brothers, a family and a company that changed the world.
Carey Perloff ("Rock ‘n’ Roll" and "Mary Stuart" at The Huntington, "A Thousand Splendid Suns" and many others at San Francisco’s ACT) will direct.
Performed entirely by three actors, the story follows the original three Lehman brothers, then their sons and grandsons, as they journey from rags to riches to ruin.
In 1840s Alabama, a Bavarian immigrant dreams of a better life for his family.
By the early 2000s, his descendants trigger unprecedented financial disaster.
In a marvel of storytelling, this extraordinary piece of theatre is both an intimate saga about a family and a monumental exposé of unbridled capitalism.
