Our Next Play
20th to 23rd November 2019
In a small, gloomy pub in Oldham in the mid-60’s, Harry wade is something of a local celebrity. But what’s the second-best hangman in England to do on the day that they abolished the death penalty?
Amongst the journalists, pub regulars, and his deputy Sid, all eager to hear his reaction to the news, a peculiarly menacing young stranger lurks with a very different motive for his visit…
It opened at the Royal Court Theatre, London in September 2015, with David Morrissey as ‘Harry’, and Reece Shearsmith as ‘Syd’.
