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

This one man show is well presented, if you can get past the [cough, cough] real cigarette [cough, cough] smoking by the actor. We should have been warned in the initial offering by Goldstar and at the venue as well. When considering this show, think about your personal squick factor. This is Neil LaBute's adaptation of a classical Greek play, updated to the present and kept flowing for the entire hour and ten minutes or so. If I didn't have smoke aversion and nowhere to escape once the show had begun, I would have rated it higher.
Quotes & Highlights
- "[Judd's] is a formidable performance and, for the record, a great benefit of this longtime fringe company's new status as an Equity company. We get to see far too little of our greatly experienced actors in such environments, and<em> Wrecks </em>is an ideal showcase for Judd -- unplugged." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/theater/theaterloop/ct-ent-1009-wrecks-review-20131008,0,6356665.column "><em>Chicago Tribune</em></a> (3.5 stars)
