Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs this critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award nominated play broadcast as live from London’s West End.

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
