The Hang Of The Gaol
  • Play
  • Prison drama for mature audiences, written by Howard Barker.

    "The Hang of the Goal, one of Barker's most successful plays, was first performed at the RCS's Warehouse Theatre in 1978. It is a study in guilt and collusion. With its topicality undiminished, it takes the lid off one of the most enclosed institutions in this or any society - the prison. When a fire demolishes the Governor's pride, subsequent investigation turns up more shame than the authorities deem acceptable. A cover-up is required, and George Jardine, the most unconventional of civil servants, near retirement and hungry for a knighthood, is recruited for the task."
