Sydney Premiere

3rd February – 6th March 2015

John wants out and so he’s taking a break from his needy boyfriend. Free from Mr. Co-Dependent, the last thing he’s expecting is to suddenly meet the woman of his dreams. Now John’s stuck in a total boy meets girl meets boyfriend clusterfuck. Caught in a maelstrom of possibility, guilt and indecision, John reckons there’s only one way to straighten this all out. Sometimes love is worth a good fight.

Mike Bartlett’s playful, candid encounter with sexuality and its discontents has already knocked out audiences in London, New York and Melbourne. Now it’s Sydney’s turn for this wildly funny, thrillingly contemporary take on this thing we call love. Bring him and her.

"A terrific comedy…Hypnotic and utterly contemporary." – NY Times.

"Uproariously funny…COCK is a rite of spring you shouldn't miss!" – New York Magazine.

"Exhilarating! Robust and rollicking. Mike Bartlett's dialogue crackles and pops with the rhetoric of vituperation." – The New Yorker.

"Pure theatricality. An engagingly unique perspective on affairs of the heart…and that other part of the body." – NY1.

"With the exception of Oscar Wilde, quarreling lovers are never as articulate and entertaining as they are in COCK, Mike Bartlett's Battle Royal of wit and persuasion." – Variety.
