THE LEHMAN TRILOGY

by Stefano Massini, adapted by Ben Power
directed by Sam Mendes

Friday, Sept. 13 • 1 – 5 p.m.

The story of a family and a company that changed the
world, told in three parts on a single evening.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The
Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.

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 and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

SMALL ISLAND


adapted by Helen Edmundson
based on the novel by Andrea Levy

Friday, Nov. 1 • 1 – 4:30 p.m.

Andrea Levy’s Orange Prize-winning novel Small Island comes to life in an epic new theatre adaptation.
Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, England.
The play follows three intricately connected stories.
Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK.

A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in London in this timely and moving story.
