"The funniest play in London right now." - Time Out London
Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen. In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey) 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 pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn) lurk with very different motives for their visit.
