Bull, the companion piece to British playwright Mike Bartlett's three-person drama Cock, receives its American premiere as part of the Brits Off Broadway line-up beginning April 25 at 59E59 Theaters.

Bull, directed by Clare Lizzimore, recently concluded a run at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield. It officially opens May 2 for a limited run through June 2 at 59E59 Theaters.

The cast features Adam James (Don't Dress for Dinner, The Pride), Eleanor Matsuura (Danton's Death, Enron), Neil Stuke (Blue/Orange) and Sam Troughton (Romeo & Juliet).

Here's how it's billed: "Two jobs. Three candidates. This would be a really bad time to have a stain on your shirt… Bull is a razor-sharp play about office politics; or playground bullying – depending which side you're on."

The design team includes Soutra Gilmour (set design), Peter Mumford (lighting design) and Christopher Shutt (sound). The choreographer is Alistair David. The fight director is Christian Thompson.
