/ Triple Bi-Pass / Arts / Bi-Polycast: Cock!!!

 

On this special Midsumma edition of the Bi-Polycast, Anthony looks closely at ‘Cock’. Featuring Matthew Connell as ‘John’ and Directed by Beng Oh, we explore the struggles that come with being in love with two people at the one time. ‘John’ has a boyfriend but he’s just met the girl of his dreams and he’s going to have to choose. Hearts are on the line and everyone’s ready for a fight in Mike Bartlett’s razor-sharp comic drama. Winner of a 2010 Olivier Award, Bartlett’s play on the ruthless pursuit of happiness has been an international sensation and is the break-through work from the writer of Doctor Foster, King Charles III and Love, Love, Love among many others. Beng and Matthew offer us an up close and personal look at this decision ‘John’ feels that he needs to make by the end of the play. Beng and Matthew also chat about their experiences of bringing themes such as love, sexuality and non-monogamy to live theatre.

First seen in 2018, Beng Oh’s critically acclaimed production is back with the original cast for a new season Presented by 15 Minutes from Anywhere
fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD, Victoria. Shows from Wednesday 30 January to Sunday 10th February 2019. This is one play not to be missed this Midsumma!!!
