Hangmen (West End) Top / Details
Tue 01 Dec - Sat 05 Mar 2016

Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh is back in the West End with his deeply funny and savagely dark new play Hangmen.
What’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they’ve abolished hanging? In his small pub in Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey) is something of a local celebrity. But amongst the reporters and pub regulars waiting for his reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn) lurk with very different motives.

Following a sold out run at the Royal Court Theatre, don’t miss this strictly limited season of “the funniest and most entertaining play in London right now” (Time Out).
