John is confused.
John has broken up with his boyfriend.
John has fallen in love again… with a woman.

Mike Bartlett’s punchy comedic drama puts you ringside as John wages war with his lovers, himself and a society that demands an answer to the question, “Who am I?” Studio 180 is proud to present the Canadian premiere of Cock, introducing Toronto audiences to acclaimed playwright Mike Bartlett and the new home of The Theatre Centre.

“A smart, prickly and rewarding view of sexual and emotional confusion.” — EVENING STANDARD

In 2009, Cock premiered at the Royal Court, winning a 2010 Olivier Award. In 2012, it received its acclaimed North American premiere at the Duke in New York. Mike Bartlett is a highly prolific and successful playwright in the UK, and Cock will be the first of his works to be produced in Canada.

Studio 180 is known for acclaimed Toronto productions of such internationally significant plays as God of Carnage, Clybourne Park, The Normal Heart, Stuff Happens and – the play with which the company launched in 2002 – the Canadian premiere of The Laramie Project. Join Studio 180 and The Theatre Centre as we begin a new long-term relationship, and look forward to seeing more from this exciting company in years to come!
