A Behanding in Spokane centers on a man’s desperate search for his missing hand that was lost 27 years prior in a bizarre railroad accident, two bickering lovebird scam artists with a hand to sell and a lonely receptionist. 

The play is written by award-winning Irish playwright Martin McDonagh and directed by Daniel Anderson.  A Behanding in Spokane is McDonagh’s first American-set play.  The play premiered in New York City in 2010 with lead actor Christopher Walken.
