Hangmen (New York)
Hangmen, written by Martin McDonagh and directed by Matthew Dunster transfers to the Atlantic Theater Company in New York from January 2018.
‘I’m just as good as bloody Pierrepoint.’
In his small pub in Oldham, Harry is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and sycophantic pub regulars, dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.
‘Don’t worry. I may have my quirks but I’m not an animal. Or am I? One for the courts to discuss.’
"Hangmen, at a stroke, re-establishes McDonagh as the one to beat, and the Court the place to be."
