I'm just as good as bloody Pierrepoint. 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. Don't worry. I may have my quirks but I'm not an animal. Or am I? One for the courts to discuss. Martin McDonagh's Hangmen premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2015.

“Hanging’s too good for ’em. Cos it is. Int it?” offers Bill, one of a trio of half-sozzled regulars that pontificate over a pint, or several, along with idle police inspector Fry. On one hand, McDonagh is having fun with the freedom of pre-PC England to air his characters’ unapologetic prejudices without inhibition — Northern Brits take the most flak, but black immigrants, Americans, the French, the Scots and particularly the Germans all are targets of droll swipes. On the other hand, the mid-’60s time frame allows the playwright to depict a climate of rigid moral superiority, where people are unaccustomed to having their conservative values questioned. “Sacrosanct” is a word that pops up repeatedly, and McDonagh takes devious pleasure in piercing the inviolate bubble of his characters.
