Martin McDonagh is a veteran when it comes to writing plays for Broadway. Hangmen is his seventh to make it.It features some exceptional - Laurence Olivier Award-winning - set design and lighting, done by Joshua Carr, which adds to the overall experience.
The pitch-black comedy is already making waves in the theater scene, having bagged five Tony nominations, including Best Play and Best Actor nominations (in separate categories) for Threlfall and Alfie Allen, who plays Mooney. It has also made it to the New York Times critics’ picks.
The show revolves around Oldham-based Harry Wade - played by David Threlfall in the new cast - who is one of the best hangmen in the country. After the UK abolishes hanging as a method of punishment, Harry is forced to think about what else he could do with his life. He’s never far from a bottle of alcohol, mainly because he runs a pub with his wife Alice, and his daughter Shirley, fifteen. Their joint is frequented by people who debate capital punishment and its merits and demerits. Where does Harry stand on the issue? Hanging people to death was his life’s profession. And he was good at it - second best in the land.A mysterious stranger enters the pub and forces him to rethink his values by going after something dear to Harry. Will new circumstances lead him back to his old ways?Also involved is an annoying cub reporter writing a story about the last day of capital punishment. All he wants is a quote for his story, but is that all he’s going to get?
