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? Amongst 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. Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre and subsequent transfer to the West End, Olivier and Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (The Cripple of Inishmaan) returns to Atlantic with his first US premiere in 8 years.
