“In his small pub in the North of England in the mid-1960s, 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 pub regulars, people are dying to hear Harry’s reaction to the news when an intriguing stranger, Mooney, from London -with a very different wardrobe and motive – enters their world.”

Alfie Allen, Gaby French, Josh Goulding, John Hodgkinson, Ryan Pope, and David Threlfall are appearing with the support of Actors’ Equity Association. The producers gratefully acknowledge Actors’ Equity Association for its assistance of this production.
