1st Night Photos: Bartlett's Cock Upstairs at Court
Date: 19 November 2009
There were double entendres aplenty last night as special guests and critics got their first taste of Cock at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs.
The play, Mike Bartlett's first for the Court since last year's Contractions, examines the categorisations of sexuality and features a young man who must choose between his ex-boyfriend and “the woman of his dreams”.
