Taron Egerton, Jonathan Bailey, Jade Anouka and Phil Daniels star in C O C K, the first West End production of Mike Bartlett’s Olivier award winning play about love and identity.
Directed by Tony and Olivier award winning Marianne Elliott, it will have a limited run at the Ambassadors Theatre in London from Saturday 5 March 2022 to Saturday 4 June 2022.
‘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 (Taron Egerton), 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 redefines the battle of the sexes as we know it.
Marianne Elliott said ‘I feel so excited to be working on this beautifully crafted and hilarious play by Mike Bartlett. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. A truly theatrical piece in that it asks the audience to enter the imagination of the storytelling – as only live theatre can do. It’s also all about the acting so to have such a talented, highly experienced, stellar cast is an absolute dream!’
Mike Bartlett added: ‘I love Marianne Elliott’s work and have done for a long time, so I’m thrilled to be able to collaborate with her on this revival. Especially with this incredible cast, which I know will bring both a fresh take and vast experience to a play about love, identity and the passionate human being.”
