As a young Bavarian man named Henry Lehman stands on a New York dockside, he believes that the world is his for the taking. Joined by his brothers, Emanuel and Mayer in 1850, the three establish a financial firm that skyrockets, later becoming one of the greatest financial firms around. However, managing a financial services firm this large brings many challenges. Following the Lehman Brothers, the play charts the firm’s ups and downs as the banking family navigate their way through modern Western capitalism.

Doing business in investment banking, equity, fixed-income sales and trading, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. was founded in 1850. Before filing for bankruptcy, Lehman was one of the largest investment banks in America, along with Goldman Sachs.
When the company filed for bankruptcy in 2008, they filed for over $600 billion dollars, remaining the largest bankruptcy filing to this day.
Lehman Brothers going bankrupt triggered the start of the global financial crisis, with large companies spiralling out of control. The fall of Lehman Brothers kickstarted the “credit crunch” in the United Kingdom.
