The title gets your attention, but Mike Bartlett's dramatic comedy is more conventional than transgressive. Cock is the classic game of triangles, but with a twist. In this case a gay couple has taken a break from one another and during the separation one of the men has fallen in love with a woman.

Bartlett populates his play about love, sex, and personal definition with characters who can instinctively sense the vulnerabilities of others. And when they smell blood they peck.
