Rehearsal images have been released offering a first look at The Lehman Trilogy at the National Theatre.

Starring Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles, the piece is the story of Lehman Brothers, which was established in 1844 New York by a family from Bavaria and had a spectacular collapse into bankruptcy 163 years later.


Sam Mendes directs the piece, which has been adapted from Stefano Massini by Ben Power. The three-hander features designs from Es Devlin, movement from Polly Bennett and video from Luke Halls.
