June 5-22: Cock

John can’t decide who he is or what he wants, and that’s posing a serious problem for his long-term boyfriend and newfound female love interest. As the three find themselves in an awkward and unwelcome love triangle, it’s up to John to resolve the situation. But that proves to be a tall order in Cock by Mike Bartlett. Directed by David Muse, the play is on stage at Studio Theatre through June 22 and includes strong language and sexual content.
