Casting has been announced for the American premiere of Mike Bartlett's acclaimed play Cock, which investigates one man's bisexuality and the love triangle that ensues. Performances will begin May 1 at the Duke on 42nd Street.
Cock won the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in An Affiliate Theatre. Stuart Thompson (Death of a Salesman, Jerusalem) and Jean Doumanian(Our Town, Tribes), along with the Royal Court Theatre, produce the American premiere.
Here's how Cock is billed: "When John and his boyfriend take a break, the last thing he expects is to suddenly meet the woman of his dreams. Now he has a big choice to make."
Bartlett's 13 premiered at the National Theatre last October. His plays also include Earthquakes in London, Love Love Love, Artefacts, Contradictions and My Child.
