Hangmen

by Martin McDonagh

12th to 19th January 2019



“Guillotine’s quick but guillotine’s messy and French. Who’d go for that in Durham?”

Harry is the landlord of a pub in Oldham. Harry is a local celebrity. Harry is the SECOND-best hangman in England, please don’t mention the FIRST! Harry is surrounded by his sycophantic pub regulars, all waiting to hear his reaction to the news they’ve abolished capitol punishment.

Harry has visitors: A reporter, his disgraced assistant, his arch nemesis and a peculiar stranger in need of lodgings…or is it revenge?

Hugely successful, this wickedly dark comedy won the 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

There is some strong language in this play.
