The National Theatre and Neal Street Productions’ The Lehman Trilogy comes to San Francisco and A.C.T., following sold-out seasons in London and a highly lauded run on Broadway, winning 5 Tony Awards® including Best Play.
Directed by Academy Award®, Tony Award®, and Golden Globe winner Sam Mendes, The Lehman Trilogy features a cast of three playing the Lehman brothers, their sons, and grandsons, in an extraordinary feat of story-telling told in three parts on a single evening. Hailed by The New York Times as “a genuinely epic production,” The Lehman Trilogy is the 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 in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers, and an American epic begins.163 years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, triggering the largest financial crisis in history.

A.C.T.’s presentation of The Lehman Trilogy is dedicated to the memory of Chair Emerita Nancy Livingston Levin.
