Dynasty (Lehman Trilogy)

Stefano Massini
Director: Michal Dočekal

The Lehman Brothers

Chapters from the history of capitalism. At the beginning was a suitcase and a ship to America. At the end, the fourth largest bank in the USA. A story from a time when you could still only trade what you could touch.

This engrossing portrait of a German-Jewish family begins with the arrival of one of the Lehman brothers in America, where he opened a small shop, and ends with the bankruptcy of the world-famous Lehman Brothers bank, triggering the global economic crisis. However, Michal Dočekal’s production does not focus on dry economic facts and figures, but is full of spontaneous theatricality, playfulness and a wild tempo in keeping with the saying “time is money!” The Goose on a String presents the Czech premiere of this internationally successful play.

Ivan Acher’s music was nominated for the Theatre Critics’ Award.
