17 July – The Royal Court annonced their new season on Twitter:
“We have announced the casting for our new Autumn season. Take a look here: “
as soon as the booking online opened, I immediately booked for “Hangmen” 19 September matinee!
It will be my 3rd time at the Royal Court, after “Haunted Child” in 2012 and “The Low Road” in 2013.
I already saw Johnny Flynn at the as protagonist of “The Low Road” and I wanted to see Reece Shearsmith on stage for long time, so I couldn’t miss the occasion! David Morrissey is a great extra bonus! I’m curious on the other members of the cast, too!
Today I also voted for the Royal Court as my favorite theatre at the “Time Out Theatre Awards 2015“: I hope they win!
HANGMEN, Jerwood Theatre Downstairs
Storyline: ‘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.’

Josef Davies as Hennessy,
James Dryden as Clegg,
Johnny Flynn as Mooney,
Graeme Hawley as Bill,
