debbie tucker green's play hang is a drama exploring justice, and the point at which punishment for a crime becomes revenge. It was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, on 11 June 2015.

The play is set in the 'nearly now', in an undefined space in which three unnamed characters (One, Two and Three) are engaged in a judicial process. One and Two are officials overseeing the process, while Three (a Black woman) is there to decide the fate of a man who has committed an unspecified crime against her family. She must choose the punishment he is to face. But the perpetrator has written her a letter and, having made her choice, she must now read his letter.

The Royal Court Theatre production was directed by debbie tucker green and designed by Jon Bausor. It was performed by Marianne Jean-Baptiste (as Three), Claire Rushbrook and Shane Zaza.
