I do think the show has classic stage farce elements (hiding behind scenery or curtains as I remember it). I don't know if that's enough to recommend seeing it on stage vs. on screen but I remember that was part of the pleasure I took in McDonagh's play... which is basically a stage farce with a lot of classic and non-classic elements stuffed into it.

I agree that it doesn't match something like BEAUTY QUEEN which has both perverse humor and tremendous pathos. HANGMEN is more of a confection, with a lot of pervy humor and a rather slight argument about the absurdity of capital punishment.
