The play, Lehman Trilogy written by the Italian writer Stefano Massini, tells the rise and the downfall of the Lehman Brothers, one of the most important and influential bank in the world, which collapsed suddenly during the 2008 crisis. By following 140 years of history of the bank, starting from the arrival of three jewish brothers that immigrated to america in the middle of the 19th, it shows the progress of capitalism; exploring how the dream of three brothers became a merciless machine crushing everything.
