londontheatre.co.uk – Jonathan Bailey and Taron Egerton will star in a West End revival of Mike Bartlett’s Cock next year. Cock is at the Ambassadors Theatre from 5 March – 4 June 2022, and Cock tickets will be on sale exclusively on LondonTheatre.co.uk next week.
Cock follows a gay couple whose relationship is called into question when John takes a break from his boyfriend. While on a break, John meets the girl of his dreams, and must decide what path to take sexually.
The Olivier Award-winning actor Jonathan Bailey will star in Cock. Previously, he’s played Jamie in Company at the Gielgud Theatre and Tim Price in American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre. Bailey is currently starring as Anthony Bridgerton in the hit Netflix series Bridgerton, and is also in W1A and Crashing.
The Golden-Globe winning actor Taron Egerton joins the cast of Cock, making a return to the stage after an eight year hiatus. The Rocketman star portrayed Elton John in the hit biopic, but has also been in The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre and No Quarter at the Royal Court.
Jade Anouka joins the Cock cast as W, who has starred in The Phlebotomist and Doctor Faustus. Phil Daniels completes the company, last in This House at the Garrick Theatre.
Marianne Elliott will direct Cock. The creative team includes set designer Merle Hansel, lighting designer Paule Constable, sound designer, Ian Dickson, composer Femi Temowo, movement director Annie-Lunette Deakin-Foster, associate director Chloe Christian, and voice work by Hazel Holder.
Elliott said about Cock: “I feel so excited to be working on this beautifully crafted and hilarious play by Mike Bartlett. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. A truly theatrical piece in that it asks the audience to enter the imagination of the storytelling – as only live theatre can do. It’s also all about the acting so to have such a talented, highly experienced, stellar cast is an absolute dream!”
