After attending a performance of the Lehman Trilogy, I was honoured to join a panel at the National Theatre on 16th October, 2018 to discuss the play. Readers will know that the play was directed by Sam Mendes, and starred three great actors in all of the complex parts: Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles. It was, and is a tour de force, and has now moved to New York.
At that invite-only side discussion of the play, an audience of 100 gathered in a private room at the NT. They included WSJ guests and subscribers, current and prospective corporate partners of the NT, and individual donors to the NT. Our Chair was Gerry Baker (Editor-At-Large of The Wall Street Journal) Sir Damon Buffini (founding partner of Permira and Chair of the National Theatre Board), Bob Diamond (former Chief Executive of Barclays and founder of Atlas Merchant Capital), Rachel Lomax (former Deputy Governor at the Bank of England 2003-2008 – and yours truly. An evening to remember!
