COCK

 

 

Performed 24 November - 11 December 2010 at Folkteatern in Gothenburg

GEST presents the Swedish premiere of Cock by Mike Bartlett.

 

A relationship on hold

A passionate love affair

Two men one woman

A man’s battle with his identity

The ambivalence of love

Sexuality

It’s decision time!

Mike Barlett’s COCK is a humoristic, provocative and thought-provoking description of sexual and emotional confusion that is rooted in a reversed norm.

COCK had its premiere at The Royal Court in London in 2009 and quickly became a success with audience and critics alike. Its fast and quick-thinking dialog – where the British language is certainly given space to show its grandness – brings you through the story in a rapid tempo.

"GEST has already won international awards for their productions - with COCK, they're in with a chance of winning more" Expressen (Click the link to read the full review in Swedish)

 

"Cock shows no exception from (GEST's) tradition of being one of the most interesting theatres we have." Göteborgs Fria

 

"The snappy exchanges are precisely timed in GEST's production of Cock." Göteborgs-Posten (Review translated to English)

 

"It is a striking representation of the strength of both acting technique and the power of words which shows yet again that (GEST) is a treasure for Gothenburg - indeed for the whole of Western Sweden - to have an ensemble that provides the best of contemporary British theatre and delivers it in its original language." Bohuslänningen

 

"Tense and snappy dialogue." Svenska Dagbladet
