The Questors Present


By Martin McDonagh

Hanging justice by the neck.

There is a bit more life in the air at the local Hangman’s family pub - and it’s not down to the quirky cronies at the bar. Today, hanging has been abolished. For good.  
With Harry’s face plastered across the front pages, his status as second best hangman and local celebrity continues to thrive. But  when a menacing young Londoner strolls up to the bar, something says he’s after more than a pint and a bag of peanuts…

Harry may have hung up the noose for good, but will he ever wash one man’s blood off his hands?  

Written by Oscar winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) this wickedly funny satire on the justice system fuses an undeniably dark tale with the mundanity of northern pub life, undercut with McDonagh’s idiosyncratic humour. Set in 60s Lancashire, this is a fast paced dark comedy that will grip you until the bitter end.

Suitable for ages 14+ due to swearing, violence, smoking, and scenes of a racist nature.

Estimated running time: 2 hours 20 minutes plus an interval
