Story of a banking family to be told in three parts in one play.

A story of the family and a company that changed the world - told in three parts on a single evening - will be shown at The Beehive, Honiton.

The Lehman Trilogy will be screened at The Beehive direct from London's Piccadilly Theatre on Thursday, July 25, from 7pm.

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.

One-hundred-and-sixty-three years later, the firm they establish - Lehman Brothers - spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

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