Unhappy in his relationship, John wants out. Or maybe he just wants time out? A break from his boyfriend for a few weeks. Or maybe months? Actually, the whole problem is John doesn’t know what he wants. But the last thing he expects is to fall in love with a woman…

Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in An Affiliate Theatre, Mike Bartlett's sharp, witty script takes a candid look at one mans sexuality and the difficulties that arise when faced with a whole new world of possibility.
Praise for Mike Bartlett's  script

“A smart, prickly and rewarding view of sexual and emotional confusion” – London Evening Standard

“With the exception of Oscar Wilde, quarrelling lovers are never as articulate and entertaining as they are in COCK, Mike Bartlett’s Battle Royal of wit and persuasion” – Variety

“Robust and rollicking. Bartlett’s dialogue crackles and pops with the rhetoric of vituperation” – The New Yorker

“Bartlett manages, deftly, to explore many exigent questions of identity, sexuality, our obsession with certainty and our visceral discomfort with ambiguity.” - Huffington Post

“A terrific comedy…Hypnotic and utterly contemporary.” - New York Times
