Cock, the pugilistic, punch-drunk comedy… that sears you with snark while ripping your heart out.” DC Theatre Scene

A good relationship is worth a good fight.
John has been in a stable relationship with his boyfriend for a number of years, but when the two take a break, he unexpectedly falls in love with a woman. Torn between the two, and filled with guilt and conflicting emotions, he doesn’t know which way to turn. Both are willing to wait for him to make a decision – and both are prepared to fight.

With feathers ruffled, the world’s oldest spectator sport commences….

British playwright Mike Bartlett has been Writer-In-Residence at the National Theatre, and Pearson Playwright in Residence at The Royal Court Theatre.
