Cock Mike Bartlett

An all-star cast including Taron Egerton (in his West End debut), Jonathan Bailey, Jade Anouka and Phil Daniels are to reprise Mike Bartlett’s play Cock in the West End.

The production will be directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliot, with performances beginning 5 March 2022 at the Ambassadors Theatre. Performances are booking until 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, played by Jonathan Bailey, is happy in himself and with his boyfriend, played by 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? Bartlett’s razor sharp play redefines the battle of the sexes as we know it.

Golden Globe Award-winner Taron Egerton (Rocketman) marks his West End debut, alongside Olivier Award-winner Jonathan Bailey (Company), television’s Jade Anouka (His Dark Materials) and stage and screen veteran Phil Daniels.

Creative team includes designer Merle Hensel, lighting designer Paule Constable, sound designer Ian Dickinson, composer Femi Temowo, movement director Annie-Lunette Deakin-Foster, casting director Charlotte Sutton, vocal coach Hazel Holder and associate director Chloe Christian. Cock is produced by Elliott & Harper Productions.
