COCK at Circa Theatre

Sales & Marketing Manager from Circa Theatre

"Raw, witty and intense... Well worth a night out" THE DOMINION POST

After sell-out seasons in Auckland and Sydney, the award-winning romcom is celebrating its Wellington debut.

COCK is a wildly funny take on contemporary love. It's for every woman who's fallen in love with the wrong guy. It's for every guy who's ever completely bollocksed up a relationship. It's for every person who's been stuck having to choose between two people. Bring him, her and them.

"An impressive package" THE EVENING STANDARD
