About the Play

“I’m just as good as bloody Pierrepoint.”

In his small pub in Oldham, Harry 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 sycophantic pub regulars, dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.

“Don’t worry. I may have my quirks but I’m not an animal. Or am I? One for the courts to discuss.”

This is a very black comedy by the author of In Bruges and The Skulls of Connemara.
