Potato black truffle croustillant with brown butter
That’s the central conceit behind Red Turnip Theater’s second offering, COCK by Mike Bartlett.
A sold-out hit when it first premiered in London in 2009 and subsequently during its off-Broadway run a year later, COCK revolves around a gay couple whose rocky relationship derails when one of them sleeps (and falls in love) with a woman.
Debates over one’s sexual identity explode when all three decide to sit down and “duke it out” over dinner.
Hilarity ensues when another unexpected guest turns up and loyalties are put to the test. As one character puts it, “It’s the ultimate bitch fight”.
Rem Zamora makes his directorial debut with COCK.
“We’re excited to be back in Whitespace. A lot of people who came to CLOSER said they enjoyed the intimacy of the experience and the space.”
COCK is a comedy with bite. No props, scenery or furniture. Just actors, sharp dialogue and some clever staging.
Zamora has assembled a tight cast of theatrical heavyweights for COCK’s Manila premier.
Topper Fabregas plays John, a young man caught between his gay lover and his growing attraction to another woman- W, played by Jamora.
Niccolo Manahan makes a theatrical comeback as M, John’s lover who isn’t about to let him go without a fight.
Rounding off this impressive cast is Audie Gemora as F, M’s well-meaning father whose sudden appearance at dinner throws everyone for a loop.
Cock is directed by Rem Zamora with technical direction and lighting design by John Batalla, set design by Denis Lagdameo, and sound design: Jethro Joaquin.
