Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen revived on Broadway starring David Threlfall, Alfie Allen, Tracie Bennett

British director Matthew Dunster’s 2015 production of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen is set to be revived at the Golden Theatre on Broadway for a 10-week run.

The play opens 8 April 2022. The show was originally slated to run at the Golden Theatre in 2020 and began previews, but was postponed because of Covid. The production had originally premiered in the US at the Atlantic Theater in 2018.

Hangmen will have a brand new cast for the revival, including David Threlfall (Shameless) as Harry, Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones) as Mooney, and Olivier Award winner Tracie Bennett (Follies) as Alice.

Andy Nyman, who starred in the original Royal Court production of Hangmen in the West End, returns to the role of Syd. He is joined by Owen Campbell as Clegg, Jeremy Crutchley as Inspector Fry, Gaby French as Shirley, Josh Goulding as Hennessy, John Hodgkinson as Albert, Richard Hollis as Bill, John Horton as Arthur, and Ryan Pope as Charlie. Other cast include Sebastian Beacon, Peter Bradbury, Katie Fabel and Colin McPhillamy.

Alongside Dunster, the play’s original UK creative team reunite, including set and costume design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Joshua Carr, and sound design by Ian Dickinson.

This dark comedy, set in the swinging 1960s in the UK, sees former hangman Harry retire from his gruesome profession to run a pub in Oldham.

Hangmen had its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2015, followed by a West End run at the Wyndham’s Theatre in 2016.
