AUDITION NOTICE

Artists’ Collective Theatre will be holding auditions for their upcoming production of Cock by Mike Bartlett on January 21st & 22nd, 2019. The show runs March 20th – 31st, 2019. Rehearsals will begin the second week of February, 2019.

When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the woman of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this out…

Mike Bartlett’s punchy story takes a playful, candid look at sexuality and the difficulties that arise when one realizes sexuality isn’t always black and white. Cock explores ambivalence in love and human nature through a nexus of emotions, relations and choices. Stripping back the whole drama to its essential language, this is a masterpiece of strong characters and well-crafted dialogue.
