Most people know about the downfall of the Lehman Brothers investment bank in September 2008 and the housing crisis/worldwide recession that followed. But lesser known is the company's origin story, which is equally dramatic but less nefarious. Catch this amazing story in a unique setting as Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) directs The Lehman Trilogy at the Royal National Theatre. If you can't make it to London this weekend, the show will be broadcast live to theaters across the world as a part of National Theatre Live, including here at SouthSide Works. Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles star as the three Lehman brothers in 1844, as well as their sons and grandsons over the following 163 years, ending with the company's collapse.
