Adam Godley, Ben Miles and Simon Russell Beale have been cast in the National Theatre’s production of The Lehman Trilogy.

Written by Stefano Massini, the play is adapted by Ben Power and directed by Sam Mendes. It is a co-production with Neal Street Productions and sees Godley, Miles and Russell Beale play the Lehman brothers.

The world premiere of the play was staged in Milan in 2015. It charts the “extraordinary story of a family and a company that changed the world”.

The show will be staged in three parts over one night in the Lyttelton Theatre, opening in July this year, with a press night to be confirmed.
