What is Cock about?

“The fact is that some of us like women and some like men and that’s fine that’s good in fact that’s good, a good thing, but it seems to me that you’ve become confused.”

John (Jonathan Bailey) is happy in himself, and with his boyfriend (Joel Harper-Jackson), until one day he meets the woman of his dreams (Jade Anouka).

In a world full of endless possibilities why must we still limit ourselves with labels? Mike Bartlett’s razor sharp play about love and identity redefines the battle of the sexes as we know it.
