Following a sell out run at the Royal Court Theatre, Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen will transfer to the West End for a strictly limited season. Now in previews, the production will have a press night on 7 December at Wyndham’s Theatre.
After a decade-long absence from the London stage, McDonagh returned to the Royal Court Theatre with Hangmen in September 2015 to critical and public acclaim. The full West End cast includes: Josef Davies, James Dryden, Johnny Flynn, Tony Hirst, John Hodgkinson, Bronwyn James, David Morrissey, Andy Nyman, Craig Parkinson, Ryan Pope, Sally Rogers, Mark Rose and Simon Rouse.
