Atlantic Theater Company celebrated the official opening of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen February 5. The Olivier Award-winning Royal Court Theatre production, which transferred to the West End prior to making its U.S. debut, is playing an extended, sold-out run Off-Broadway through March 7.
In Hangmen, local British hangman Harry (played by Game of Thrones' Mark Addy) finds himself without a job on the day that hanging has been abolished. In the wake of this historic decision, a string of events lead to both comic and tragic consequences.
