From the pen of one of Britain's most provocative playwrights, Mike Bartlett, Cock is an exploration of attraction, ambivalence and commitment -- with a modern twist. When John takes a break from his longtime boyfriend, he surprisingly finds love in the arms of a woman. Trapped between two lovers, neither of whom is ready to give up the fight, John must navigate tricky emotional waters. Caught in a complicated, contemporary love triangle, which "alternative lifestyle" will John ultimately choose? Cock was the recipient of the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre, and is making its Midwest premiere under the direction of Darrell W. Cox. Learn More

Thought-provoking, effective, personal. Really cared about the characters. And how about those two guys doing the quick changes? They put a very professional finish on an already crisp, clear (yet sometimes uncomfortable - due to the subject matter/situations) production. Bottom line: the script itself is high-caliber. Well worth a look.
