MIDSUMMA FESTIVAL
Cock image by Scott Gooding
John has a boyfriend but he's just met the girl of his dreams and he's going to have to choose. Is John gay or just inexperienced? Which is the correct choice? Is there a correct choice? Can he have it all? Hearts are on the line and everyone's ready for a fight in Mike Bartlett's razor-sharp comic drama.

Winner of a 2010 Olivier Award, Bartlett's play on the ruthless pursuit of happiness has been an international sensation and is the break-through work from the writer of Doctor Foster, King Charles III and Love, Love, Love among many others. First seen in 2018, Beng Oh's critically acclaimed production is back with the original cast for a new season at fortyfivedownstairs.

"Beng Oh's production "¦ is exemplary "¦ The acting is uniformly excellent. A challenging, thought provoking and very interesting work." - Stage Whispers

"It is evident that Oh has gained the complete trust of his actors. The minimalism of this production "¦ allows it to triumph. One is taken into the inner lives of three people desperately fighting their corner." - Theatre People

Featuring an experienced cast of Melbourne actors with Matthew Connell (John), Shaun Goss (M), Marissa O'Connell (W) and Scott Gooding (F) in Emily Collett's design, Cock promises to be a highlight of the 2019 Midsumma Festival.

Formed in 2013, 15 Minutes from Anywhere is the artistic collaboration between director Beng Oh and writer Jane Miller. Credits include Just a Boy, Standing in Front of a Girl (La Mama), True Love Travels on a Gravel Road (Fortyfivedownstairs), Cuckoo (fortyfivedownstairs/The Unknown Union), Motherf#cker (La Mama), Mein Kampf (fortyfivedownstairs), P.O.V. Dave (La Mama), Sh#t Happens (La Mama) and The Yellow Wave (The Butterfly Club/La Mama)
