Executioner Number One

Executioner Number One


“What this job needs is an experienced pair of hands. It’s a sober business, not Storage Hunters.”
The world premiere of a new black comedy, written and performed by So You Think You’re Funny finalist and the award-winning creator of Being Human and writer of Doctor Who,Toby Whithouse, who had the opening production of Soho Theatre’s Dean Street home in 2000 with his Verity Bargate Award-winning play Jump Mr Maniloff Jump.
After an overwhelming public vote brought back the death penalty 40 years ago, Ian has had one ambition: to be the country’s most senior hangman. With the death of the current Executioner Number One, his goal is within reach.
Toby Whithouse joins forces with former Soho Associate Director Jonathan Lloyd, designer Andrew Purcell (Being Human), and lighting designer Chahine Yavroyan (Let the Right One In) to present the world premiere of a brilliant and devastating dark comedy.
