National Theatre Live:
Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen

Photo credit: HelenMaybanks 1920x980

Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Cripple of Inishmaan) returns with his deeply funny new play Hangmen.

High-Definition Broadcasts from National Theatre, London. Presented in partnership with the Michigan Theater.

In his small pub in the northern English town of 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? Among the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd and the peculiar Mooney lurk with very different motives for their visit.
