COCK by Mike Bartlett

Untold Wants Theatre

Culture Lab

Two Cocks fightingMike Bartlett’s uproarious battle of wit and persuasion centers around John, who, having left his 7 year relationship with M, a man, falls in love with W, a woman. “That’s what this is, isn’t it? The ultimate bitch fight?” John’s choice becomes not only a choice between two people, but a larger choice of lifestyle, family, and identity.

John finds himself in a ridiculous and delicate dance between his lovers, so as not to lose those them, or worse, his sense of self. The play begs the question, does who we love dictate who we are? Aware of society’s expectations of labels, it screams “No.” But, like John who can never really be sure, we find ourselves vacillating between examples and what-ifs. The piece sheds light on the nuance of any relationship, regardless of sexual preference.

“Not man or woman but what they’re like. What they do. Why didn’t anyone say?” The piece is non-linear, with a hilarious, yet sardonic twist for an ending.
