It has been announced that Matthew Dunster’s production of Martin Donagh’s Hangmen will transfer to the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 1st December running for a limited season until the 5th March 2016. The news comes following a sold out run at the Royal Court Theatre with tickets for the transfer are on sale now.
After a ten year absence from the stage, McDonagh returned to the London stage with Hangmen in September to critical and public acclaim. Original cast members David Morrissey and Johnny Flynn will reprise their roles for the transfer.
In a small pub, Harry is something of a celebrity in the town of Oldham. But what is the second best hangman in England to do on the day that they abolish hanging?
Among the people who want to know Harry’s take on the news, a mysterious stranger lurks with a very different motive for visiting the town.
Producer Robert Fox said of the news: “I am thrilled to be working with Martin McDonagh again on this stunning production of his new play Hangmen, wonderfully directed by Matthew Dunster”.
Meanwhile Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre Vicky Featherstone commented: ” We are delighted that Hangmen will have a future life in the West End. It’s been thrilling to be able to continue the legacy of Martin McDonagh’s work at the Royal Court. Hangmen will become a modern classic.”
Hangmen will appear at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 1st December and running until the 5th March 2016. To book tickets visit: Delfont Mackintosh Theatre .
