Brits Off Broadway Adds Mike Bartlett's Bull to Spring Festival
By Adam Hetrick
Bull, a companion piece to British playwright Mike Bartlett's three-person drama Cock, will receive its American premiere as part of the Brits Off Broadway line-up this spring.
Cock, which investigated one man's bisexuality and the love triangle that ensues, premiered Off-Broadway last season following a 2009 London debut at the Royal Court Theatre. U.S. critics praised Bartlett's work.
Bull, directed by Clare Lizzimore, recently concluded a run at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield. It will begin Off-Broadway performances April 25 for a limited run through June 2 at 59E59 Theaters.
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."
Bartlett's plays also include Earthquakes in London, Love Love Love, Artefacts, Contradictions and My Child.
Tickets to Brits Off Broadway are available by calling Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200 or online at 59e59.org.
