News   Mike Bartlett's London Hit Will Arrive Off-Broadway in 2012
 
Mike Bartlett's acclaimed play Cock, which investigates one man's bisexuality and the love triangle that ensues, will arrive Off-Broadway in spring 2012, producers announced Oct. 6.

Critics embraced the 80-minute production, which played a sold-out run at London's Royal Court Theatre in 2009. It went on to win the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in An Affiliate Theatre.

Original director James Macdonald will return to stage the Off-Broadway production of Cock, which is being produced by Stuart Thompson, Jean Doumanian and the Royal Court.

Dates of production, casting and an Off-Broadway theatre have not been announced. The London production featured Andrew Scott, Katherine Parkinson, Ben Whishaw and Paul Jesson.

Here's how Cock is billed: "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."

Bartlett's 13 will premiere at the National Theatre Oct. 18. His plays also include Earthquakes in London, Love Love Love, Artefacts, Contradictions and My Child.
