<i>I'm just as good as bloody Pierrepoint.</i>

In his small pub in 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 sycophantic pub regulars, dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.

<i>Don't worry.

I may have my quirks but I'm not an animal.

Or am I?

One for the courts to discuss.</i>

Martin McDonagh's <b>Hangmen </b>premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2015.
