From the devilishly inspired mind of Martin McDonagh – Academy Award-winning writer of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – Hangmen, a killer comedy.
What’s Britain’s second-most famous executioner to do now that hanging has been abolished? Drink, of course. But when a cub reporter and a mysterious stranger turn up at his pub, everything hangs in the balance. Hangmen marked McDonagh’s seventh play on Broadway, following his Tony-nominated productions of The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Play, Hangmen played at the the Golden Theatre on Broadway after its sold-out engagements in London and at off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theatre Company.
