Olivier Award Winning COCK to Open Off-Broadway Spring 2012

ROYAL COURT’S OLIVIER AWARD WINNING

“COCK”

BY MIKE BARTLETT

DIRECTED BY JAMES MACDONALD

TO OPEN OFF-BROADWAY

SPRING, 2012

The Royal Court’s Olivier Award winning new play, COCK by Mike Bartlett, directed by James Macdonald, will open Off-Broadway at a theatre to be announced in Spring, 2012.

COCK will be produced by Stuart Thompson, Jean Doumanian and the Royal Court following an acclaimed production at the Royal Court Theatre in London.

When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. Mike Bartlett’s punchy new story takes a playful, candid look at one man’s sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realize you have a choice.  His previous plays include Earthquakes in London for the National Theatre and Headlong; Love Love  Love for Paines Plough, Artefacts for Nabokov/Bush Theatre, and Contractions and My Child for the Royal Court.  His play, 13, will open later this month at the National Theatre.  COCK won the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in An Affiliate Theatre.
