Oscar Isaac Joins Mark Addy, Johnny Flynn, and More for Hangmen Opening
Martin McDonagh's new play is directed by Matthew Dunster.
The American premiere of Martin McDonagh's Olivier Award-winning Hangmen took place at the Atlantic Theater Company on Monday, February 5. The production is directed by Matthew Dunster, who helmed the dark comedy's debut productions at London's Royal Court and on the West End.
The show features Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Owen Campbell (As You Are), Billy Carter (Shining City), Maxwell Caulfield (An Inspector Calls), Johnny Flynn (Lovesick), Gaby French, Gilles Geary, Richard Hollis (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), John Horton (The Language Archive), David Lansbury (War Horse), Sally Rogers (Blue Heart at BAM), and Reece Shearsmith (High Rise). Flynn, Rogers, and Shearsmith all appeared in the original London cast.
Hangmen is described as follows: "In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (Addy) 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 pub regulars dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Shearsmith) and the peculiar Mooney (Flynn) lurk with very different motives for their visit."
The production's creative team includes scenic and costume design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Joshua Carr, sound design by Ian Dickinson for Autograph, dialects by Stephen Gabis, and fight choreography by J. David Brimmer.
