Cock | May 8th - 18th Flight Path Theatre, Addison Rd Community Centre 142 Addison Rd, Marrickville

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 metrosexual play about love and longing provides us a blueprint of who we are and who we want to be. John’s refusal to fix his identity disturbs and disrupts the lives of those around him in this contemporary tale of sex without nudity and struggle without violence.

“A journalist is a cross between a bootlegger and a whore.”


Late at night, in the crowded press room at Chicago’s Criminal Courts, a group of reporters is waiting to cover a controversial execution the next morning. Then an unexpected event breaks through the banter and bravura, the cynicism and ennui, and suddenly a scoop is on the cards.

This landmark comedy from 1928 introduced the now-familiar trope of the hard-living, hard-drinking reporter determined to get to the truth at any cost. Though computers have replaced typewriters, and the internet has changed the way news is reported, this satire on systemic corruption, manipulation and scandal in politics, journalism and justice still hits a nerve. The plot twists and turns as much as its the ethically elastic characters, and the laugh-a-minute, rapid-paced script will get the adrenaline rushing.
