Cock tickets

Bartlett’s razor-sharp play returns

Mike Bartlett's Olivier Award-winning play Cock returns to the West End for an all-star revival this year, featuring Bridgerton's Jonathan Bailey.

John has always been happy with his boyfriend and secure in who he is, but that all changes when he finds himself falling for the girl of his dreams. Exploring sexuality and identity with wit and sensitivity, Cock asks us to question what we think we know about love, identity and labels. 

Breakout star of Bridgerton Jonathan Bailey (West End: Company) stars as John, with Joel Harper-Jackson as his boyfriend, M. Jade Anouka and Phil Daniels round out the cast. 

Bartlett is the acclaimed writer of King Charles III and BBC’s Doctor Foster. Marianne Elliott (Company; Angels in America) directs this new production of his acclaimed earlier work. 

Cock play tickets are sure to be one of the most popular of 2022 - book now to avoid missing its strictly limited season at the Ambassadors Theatre.

Performance dates: 03 Jun 2022 - 04 Jun 2022

Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes

Age recommendation: Best for age 14+

Special notice: Please note that Taron Egerton has withdrawn from remaining performances of Cock. Joel Harper-Jackson will play M for the remainder of the run.

The appearance of cast members cannot be guaranteed and may be subject to illness, holiday or other events beyond the producer's control.

Sharp, funny and cleverly staged with a sparse set and revolving floor spaces. Intimacy and undress just suggested by stylised movement. Acting all round was excellent and the cast deserved their standing ovation, especially after 1 hr 45 min with no interval.

WOW!!! This show surpised me. The emotion left by Jonathan Bailey (who never left the stage) was another level. The show has 4 members of the cast and you could feel the connection between them all in every pairing. A show on another level entirely.

4 people (Phils Daniels only for the last 30 mins), no set to speak of, no props (they mime the use of props) and no costumes. More like a rehersal setting really, but actually quite a clever way to avoid nudity on stage - given the casting that would have distracted from the work itself. A revloving stage actually works well in some scenes, but there is some running around the stage ( a Mike Bartlett speciality) that doesn't really serve a purpose. An important play, a good production. If only the stupid pricing didn't make it inaccessible to most.

The prolific Mike Bartlett - 3rd play of his I've seen recently - writes some hits and some misses. This one is a hit, no doubt, but also an important play. Written before its time, it is now of the moment, looking not just at gender issues but also about relationships - accepting an easy option rather than the much more difficult wanted option.

Great show in a small theatre but chose not to use microphones and so we struggled to hear all the dialogue not helped by lots of people talking, coughing or eating around us. I’m sure I’d have enjoyed it more if I could hear. Cast were great though

5 ⭐️‘S for the performances of Jonathan Bailey taking on the role of M and on the night another new John, Dominic Holmes. The play isn’t up to the sum of its parts
