"A highly emotional ride... an impeccably paced play... a forceful energy."
- Lisa Much, Columbus Underground

"A terrific comedy with an unprintable name."
- Ben Brantley, New York Times

"A sharp, witty study of a man helplessly torn between his longtime male partner and a loving woman. Bartlett's theme, in fact, is less tortured bisexuality than the paralyzing indecision that stems from not knowing who one really is."
- Michael Billington, The Guardian, UK

No scenery, no props, just a four-person battle of emotional blackmail — (directed by Ian Short) — and to the victors go the spoils of desire.

"A GOOD RELATIONSHIP IS WORTH A GOOD FIGHT."

A story of one man, his boyfriend, his new girlfriend, and a surprise dinner guest, Mike Bartlett's "cockfight play" is an unflinching look at the consequences of our intimate relationships and the extent to which we are defined by our sexual identities.

The hottest thing to come out of Britain in years, "the cockfight play" is a passionate, erotic tug-of-war. The tiny cast revels in the power of suggestion and insinuation, fully giving their blood, sweat, and tears over to the carnage.
