It’s 1965, and the death penalty has just been abolished in the U.K. In a small town in northern England, everyone wants to know what Harry, the second-best hangman in the country, has to say about it. As the news breaks, Harry’s pub is overrun with a motley crew of sycophants and a cub reporter hungry for a quote…until attentions turn to Mooney, a smiley, inscrutable visitor with mysterious motives. From Martin McDonagh — award-winning playwright (The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Pillowman) and screenwriter (The Banshees of Inisherin, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) — this dark comedy-mystery is a criminally fun and macabre delight!
“A delectably dark comedy about injustice, revenge and man’s instinct for violence, state-sanctioned or otherwise.”
“Brilliant and electrifyingly satisfying. McDonagh’s command of language and pace is as mischievous as it is virtuosic. It is both quietly devastating and revealingly absurd.” Daily Beast
Runtime: 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission
