The Evening Standard: **** Fiona Mountford commented: “McDonagh’s exquisite comic timing sparkles everywhere here.”
Whatsonstage: **** Daisy Bowie-Sell summed it up saying: “Hangmen is one of the best shows in the West End at the moment: brutal, bizarre and blindingly funny.”
London Theatre 1: **** Peter Yates said: “McDonagh gets you in his noose; gradually pulls it tighter and tighter; and leaves you nervously wondering when that trap-door is going to open.”
The Upcoming: ***** Dominique Perrett said: “Hangmen, like most great plays, leaves us questioning whether there is justice in this wicked world.”
Broadway World: Laura Jones found that: “McDonagh’s writing is witty, sharp and devilishly funny while the strong cast have excellent comic timing.”
Culture Whisper: ***** “Hangmen is a tour de force that shows McDonagh working at the peak of his capabilities with the audience hanging on his every word.”
The Stage: **** Natasha Tripney said: “A triumphant transfer for Martin McDonagh’s barbed, pitch-black comedy.”
