Tron Theatre Company presents Cock by Mike Bartlett

‘Why are you telling me I have to know what I am? It doesn’t matter. I love him because he makes me toast in bed and he’s scared of cling film. I love her because she makes me feel as old as I really am. She’s gentle.’

After his long-term gay relationship breaks down, John unexpectedly meets a woman with whom he discovers new pleasures and excitement. With the ex-boyfriend preening and strutting in the background, and his new girlfriend uncovering a whole different side to his personality, John is increasingly wracked with guilt and indecision about who he is and what he wants.  When a civilised dinner to discuss the way forward rapidly descends into a messy cockfight, John has to make a choice. What will he do?

Tron Theatre Company’s production of Mike Bartlett’s sharp and witty play will be the first UK staging since its Royal Court premiere six years ago.

"With the precious exception of literati like Oscar Wilde and his beloved Bosie, quarreling lovers are never as articulate and entertaining as they are in Cock." Variety
