Cock at Metro Arts

Home > Brisbane > Performing Arts | Shows | Theatre
Event: -
If you are looking for an evening that will spark conversation and you can't look further than Mike Bartlett's intriguing black comedy Cock. In fact, the ideal evening would be to plan for a late dinner or drinks after the play with friends so you can continue with the speculation and gossip the play generates. But be warned, after seeing the play you will find yourself discussing the morals and ethics of all the characters as if they are your co-workers, friends or stars in your favourite Netflix series.

characters so real you think you know them


Cock is confronting and thought-provoking. There is no set design, on props, the four actors work with an empty stage, changing scenes through light and sound. Despite almost graphic sex scenes they never touch each other, yet successfully convey passion, lust and sadness.

Confronting funny and thought provoking


Each actor brings their character to life slowly, revealing new facets as the tension and drama builds to the inevitably devastating dinner party conclusion.

Cock will challenge your perceptions of gender, sexuality and societal norms, it will expose the human vulnerabilities and selfishness that underlie and betray true love and trust.

I highly recommend that you take the opportunity to see this play before it is too late. Tickets are accessibly priced; dinner is available on site or in nearby venues.
