***Hurry! The best seats are selling fast***

Following a sell out run at the Royal Court Theatre, the universally acclaimed production of Martin McDonagh’s first UK play in over 10 years transfers to Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.

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.

Martin’s McDonagh’s theatre credits include The Beauty Queen of Leenane (the Royal Court), The Cripple of Inishmaan (National/West End/Broadway), The Pillowman (National/ Broadway), The Lieutenant of Inishmore (RSC/Garrick/Broadway) and A Behanding in Spokane (Broadway). For film (as Writer/Director) credits include Six Shooter (Short), In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. Martin has been awarded the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy (The Lieutenant of Inishmore), an Olivier Award for Best New Play (The Pillowman), an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film (Six Shooter) and a BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay (In Bruges).

Matthew Dunster directs as original cast members David Morrissey and Johnny Flynn reprise their roles.

  • Not funny

    28 June 2016

    We arrived expecting as stated a line by line hilarious play and what we got was dower, Badlwt thought out dramatics, dull stage setting , racism , swearing and anger that took the form of shouting by the lead actor... All in all a waste of our time and our money .... The people next to us left after the first half and nobody around us was laughing either .... Close the show now !!!
