After winning big at this year’s Tony Awards, The Lehman Trilogy will return to the West End next year. The Lehman Trilogy will play at a West End theatre for a limited season from January 2023.

Stefano Massini’s play charts the formation of the Lehman Brothers bank. During the play, three actors recount the 163 years of banking history and its eventual global collapse. The Lehman Trilogy premiered at the National Theatre in 2018, and later transferred to the Piccadilly Theatre the following year.

In a London Theatre review of The Lehman Trilogy, our critic said: “This is one of those occasions when the idea of a different cast taking on the mantle is heartbreaking. The singular alchemy of acting, design and direction in this production is so superb that it must be witnessed.”

The Lehman Trilogy played a limited run on Broadway, and won five Tony Awards at the 2022 ceremony: Best Play, Best Director (Sam Mendes), Best Actor (Simon Russell Beale), Best Scenic Design (Es Devlin) and Best Lighting Design (Jon Clark). Find out more about the Tony-winning shows here.

Casting for The Lehman Trilogy in the West End is to be announced. The show features costume design by Katrina Lindsay, and sound design by Nick Powell.
