Hangmen (Broadway, John Golden Theatre, 2022) | Playbill


Dark Comedy

From the devilishly inspired mind of Martin McDonagh—Academy Award®-winning writer of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri—comes Hangmen, a killer comedy nominated for 5 Tony Awards® including Best Play. 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 marks 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 plays a strictly limited engagement at the Golden Theatre after multiple sold-out engagements in London and Off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theatre Company.

SYNOPSIS: England 1965 – What is Britain’s (second most) famous executioner to do now that hanging has been abolished? The simple answer is a lot more than he bargained for. In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry is something of a local celebrity and the cub reporters and pub regulars are dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, while his old assistant Syd and the mysterious Mooney lurk with very different motives for their visit.
