    In the Ring, the Spoils of Desire

    BEN BRANTLEY

    May 18, 2012: “Cockfight Play” is not the title of the terrific, tense little comedy by Mike Bartlett that opened on Thursday night at the Duke on 42nd Street.

    May 17, 2012: With the precious exception of literati like Oscar Wilde and his beloved Bosie, quarreling lovers are never as articulate and entertaining as they are in "Cock," Mike Bartlett's provocatively titled play about a gay couple who split up when one of them falls for a woman. Wittily staged in a stylized cock-fighting ring, the contest for the narcissistic love object is a battle royal of wit and persuasion that only breaks down once it becomes obvious (if not to the loveblinded rivals) that this shallow boy isn't worth all the angst.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Cock

    May 17, 2012: There's no question that Mike Bartlett's Cock, now at The Duke on 42nd Street, has an attention-grabbing title. Fortunately, the play itself proves equally provocative, especially in James Macdonald's extremely well-acted production.
