Mike Bartlett

Published by Methuen

3 Male 1 Female

When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams

Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this out ...

Mike Bartlett's punchy drama takes a playful, candid look at one man's sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realise you have a choice

With carefully poised dialectics, Cock explores ambivalence in love and human nature through a nexus of emotions, relations and choices

Stripping back the whole drama to its essential language only, this is a masterpiece of strong characters and well-crafted dialogue

"Mike Bartlett's play is a sharp, witty study of a man helplessly torn between his longtime male partner and a loving woman. Barlett's theme, in fact, is less tortured bisexuality than the paralysing indecision that stems from not knowing who one really is" ~ Michael Billington, Guardian

" ... brilliant and blackly hilarious" ~ Paul Taylor, Independent
