Killian Scott may be well known for his work on the screen from Love/Hate to Dublin Murderer.

But now the Dublin actor will take to the stage for the first time in 2023.

The actor will be joining a hefty cast in a play written by Martin McDonagh who is the mind behind The Banshees of Inisherin and In Bruges.

The play, named The Hangman, will have its Irish premiere in March of next year.

This darkly comic tale follows the success of recent Gaiety Productions of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Lieutenant of Inishmore and The Lonesome West.

The synopsis of the play reads: “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 local 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…”

The cast is pretty stacked with the likes of Gary Lydon also taking to the stage.
