Atlantic Theater Company has announced casting for the U.S. premiere of the Olivier Award-winning Royal Court Theatre production of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen, directed by Matthew Dunster. The new play, which enjoyed a sold-out run at London’s Royal Court before transferring to the West End, is set to debut Off-Broadway in January 2018.
Hangmen will begin previews January 18 ahead of a February 5 opening. The Off-Broadway engagement is scheduled through March 4 at Atlantic Theater Company’s Linda Gross Theater.
The cast of Hangmen will be made up of Mark Addy (Game of Thrones, The Full Monty), Owen Campbell (As You Are), Billy Carter (Shining City), Maxwell Caulfield (An Inspector Calls), Johnny Flynn (Lovesick, Jerusalem), Gaby French (Off-Broadway debut), Gilles Geary (Off-Broadway debut), Richard Hollis (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), John Horton (The Language Archive, Amadeus), David Lansbury (War Horse, Michael Clayton), Sally Rogers (Blue Heart, The Bill), and Reece Shearsmith (High Rise, The League of Gentlemen).
Flynn, Rogers, and Shearsmith appeared in the original London cast.
In Hangmen, Harry (Addy), the second-best hangman in England—and also something of a local celebrity—has just learned that hanging has been abolished. Set in a small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, everyone is dying to hear how he will react to the news.
