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.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
