Stefano Massini / Piccolo Teatro di Milano-Teatro d'Europa

SOMETHING ABOUT LEHMAN by Italian playwright Stefano Massini tells the story of the historic rise and fall of Lehman Brothers investment house. The fiction book is based on Massini's theatre plays "The Lehman Trilogy", a five-hour saga that traces the legacy of the infamous banking family back three generations, beginning with their humble arrival to America in the mid-1800s and ending with their empire’s eventual demise in 2008.

The play premiered at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan in 2015 was the last work of legendary Italian theatre director Luca Ronconi and has since been produced widely in Europe. The Oscar Award winning director Sam Mendes will be staging “Lehman Trilogy”. Join us for a conversation with Stefano Massini about his work, the history of the Teatro di Milano-Teatro d'Europa in Milan, and contemporary theatre in Europe.
