NEW YORK CITY - When John and his boyfriend take a break, the last thing he expects is to suddenly meet the woman of his dreams. Now he has a big choice to make. Don't miss the American premiere of COCK, the gripping new play by Mike Bartlett. James Macdonald (Top Girls, Dying City) directs this Olivier Award-winning production from The Royal Court Theatre.

Mike Bartlett’s punchy new story takes a playful, candid look at one man’s sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realize you have a choice. His previous plays include Earthquakes in London for the National Theatre and Headlong; Love Love Love for Paines Plough, Artefacts for Nabokov/Bush Theatre, and Contractions and My Child for the Royal Court. His play, 13, will open later this month at the National Theatre. Cock won the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in An Affiliate Theatre.

Directed by James Macdonald and starring Jason Butler Harner as M, Amanda Quaid as W, Cory Michael Smith as John and Cotter Smith as F, COCK will open Off-Broadway at The Duke on 42nd Street, a NEW 42nd STREET project, 229 West 42nd Street, on Thursday, May 17 and previews will begin Tuesday, May 1.

“One of the most distinguished pieces of theatre to hit the London stage in the past year.  Arresting.” - The Observer

“Smart, prickly and rewarding view of sexual and emotional confusion.  Impressive.” - Evening Standard

“Compelling.  Written with toe-curling frankness, wry humour and gut-wrenching precision.  The hottest piece of new writing at the moment on the London stage.” - The Stage


COCK is produced by Stuart Thompson, Jean Doumanian and the Royal Court Theatre.  They will be joined by William Berlind, Scott Delman, Dena Hammerstein, Jon B. Platt, Scott Rudin, Ted Snowdon, True Love Productions.
