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

On my private rating system, 3 stars means "I liked it." Four stars is "I'm glad I didn't miss it" and 5 stars is "Must see for everyone." So this is 3 stars - if you are looking for an enjoyable play, this one will fill the bill. Konstantin Khrustov as the cab driver is perfectly cast and utterly convincing, and worth the price of admission all by himself. Be warned - the play is not merely laced with profanity, it is largely composed of profanity, or at least vulgarity, and if you dislike humor based on stereotypes...you will still like this dose of it.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Dillon's Driver reacts to every noise and every physical intrusion into his space, not that he really has a space to call his own, like a nervous terrier. It's quite the tour de force of physical comedy, and it is both hilarious and poignant throughout.” --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/theater/ct-ott-1115-hellcab-review-20131115,0,5671638.column?track=rss">Chicago Tribune</a></em>
- “Darrell Cox's terse, intelligent revival of Will Kern's dark comedy shows why it was such a lasting hit in the 1990s.” --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/hellcab/Event?oid=10815895">Chicago Reader</a></em>
