Martin McDonagh’s hit new play Hangmen, currently playing at the Royal Court theatre, is to transfer to the West End later this year.
Hangmen which is sold-out has received numerous 5-star reviews with Susannah Clapp from the Guardian tipping that Hangmen will be the Royal Court’s next Jerusalem.
The play, which is McDonagh’s first UK play in a decade, will play a limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre from 1 December 2015 until 5 March 2016.
Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone said: “We are delighted that Hangmen will have a future life in the West End. It’s been thrilling to be able to continue the legacy of Martin McDonagh’s work at the Royal Court. Hangmen will become a modern classic. This stunning production has been a huge success here and a commercial life will mean it can be seen by many more people – which is, after all, why we make theatre.”
Full casting is yet to be announced by original cast members David Morrissey and Johnny Flynn will reprise their roles.
Hangmen is directed by Matthew Dunster and has design by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Joshua Carr and sound by Ian Dickinson.
