Publisher Comments:

'But that's what this is, isn't it? The ultimate bitch fight.'

When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this out...

Mike Bartlett's punchy new story takes a playful, candid look at one man's sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realise you have a choice. With carefully poised dialectics, "Cock" explores ambivalence in love and human nature through a nexus of emotions, relations and choices. Stripping back the whole drama to its essential language only, this is a masterpiece of strong characters and well-crafted dialogue.

Publication of this play coincided with its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre, London in November 2009.
