Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen, currently running at the Royal Court, is to transfer to the West End later this year.

The play, which is McDonagh’s first in a decade, will play a limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre from December 1.

It will run until March 5, 2016, with press night on December 7.

Original cast members David Morrissey and Johnny Flynn will reprise their roles for the transfer, which will be produced by Robert Fox and Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions and Royal Court Productions.

Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone said: “We are delighted that Hangmen will have a future life in the West End. It’s been thrilling to be able to continue the legacy of Martin McDonagh’s work at the Royal Court. Hangmen will become a modern classic. This stunning production has been a huge success here and a commercial life will mean it can be seen by many more people – which is, after all, why we make theatre.”

Hangmen is directed by Matthew Dunster and has design by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Joshua Carr and sound by Ian Dickinson.
