Discuss a Historically-Minded Play with a Local Professor During This Lecture Series

It is the story of a family and a company that changed the world told in three parts on a single afternoon. On Sunday, July 28th, head to Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center for an encore screening of The Lehman Trilogy and a special discussion held immediately after.

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.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, The Ferryman) directs Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons, and grandsons in The Lehman Trilogy. This critically acclaimed and five-time Olivier Award-nominated play features stunning set design from Es Devlin and will be broadcast live from London’s West End as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th Birthday season.

Following the screening, there will be a 20-30 minute discussion with guest speaker Julia Schleck. Author of “Telling True Tales of Islamic Lands,” Julia Schleck is an Associate Professor of English and a faculty member in the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
