John has a boyfriend but he's just met the girl of his dreams and he's going to have to choose. Hearts are on the line and everyone's ready for a fight in Mike Bartlett's razor-sharp comic drama. Winner of a 2010 Olivier Award, Bartlett's play on the ruthless pursuit of happiness has been an international sensation and is the break-through work from the writer of Doctor Foster, King Charles III and Love, Love, Love among many others.

"Quoting critic Michael Billington's earlier observation, Cock is truly in Schopenhauer's words, a "tyranny of the weak" and a spectacular display of it." - Theatre Press - Leeor Adar (1 Feb 2019)
"I offer huge congratulations to the production team and to this group of very fine performers." – Australian Stage - Doug Knight (31 Jan 2019)
"Beng Oh's production ... is exemplary" – Stage Whispers
"Refreshing and brave" – Theatre People
