COCK

online tickets available HERE

Stooged Theatre is thrilled to be making their debut at the Royal Exchange, staging the winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, Cock by Mike Bartlett.

"Exhilarating! Robust and rollicking. Mike Bartlett's dialogue crackles and pops..." —The New Yorker

"★★★★ When it’s funny it’s hilarious, and when it moves you, it’s a theatrical gut-punch." — Herald Sun

John needs a break from his needy boyfriend, he needs to find himself and he needs to be single.

John then meets the girl of his dreams.

Torn between the two, John flip flops between male and female, straight and gay, whatever he is. Full of guilt and indecision, John feels the pressure as, the truth be told, he doesn't know what he needs. And his boyfriend and new girlfriend need him to decide.

Wowing audiences in London, New York, Melbourne and Sydney, Mike Bartlett's Cock is a wild exploration of sexuality and ambivalence, and as lovers battle for their claim, we learn this is the ultimate cockfight.

Cock is directed by Mathew Lee (The Pillowman, Equus) and is assisted by Charlotte De Wit (Lord of the Flies).

Hanussen: Hitler’s Astrologer

Historical drama directed by István Szabó starring Klaus Maria
Brandauer, and Erland Josephson (Germany 1988, 140 min)
After the World War I, Schneider, a man with strong powers of
empathy and of clairvoyance, changes his name to Eric Jan
Hanussen and goes to Berlin, as a hypnotist and clairvoyant
performing in halls and theatres. He always speaks the truth, which
brings him to the attention of powerful Nazis. He predicts their rise
(good propaganda for them) and their violence (not so good). He's in
pain and at risk. What is Hanussen's future? (www.imdb.com).

YEAR OF THE ROOSTER

by Olivia Dufault



Gil is a loser. He works at McDonald's, lives with his ailing mother, and hasn't had a girlfriend since...ever. But that's all about to change. He's been secretly training (and drugging) a rooster to fight. And Odysseus Rex aka "Odie" is the baddest barnyard bird there is. Gil has so much faith in Odie's abilities that he bets everything on him -- but victory and revenge may not yield the delicious spoils he anticipates. A fiercely comic play about cockfighting, connections, and clawing your way to the top.
