Red Turnip's "COCK" will be staged at Whitespace starting March 7

Do you ever think, what happens when a young gay man falls in love with a woman? What went right or wrong behind the happenings? What will each party do to succeed?

From Red Turnip's first theatrical play "CLOSER", to this season, on its second offering "COCK" by Mike Bartlett they promise to be more intimate and engaging. In 2009, "COCK" in London is always a sold out hit specially on its premiere.




A story that revolves around a gay couple whose rocky relationship derails when one of them sleeps (and falls in love) with a woman. Debates over one’s sexual identity explode when all three decide to sit down and “duke it out” over dinner. Hilarity ensues when another unexpected guest turns up and loyalties are put to the test. As one character puts it, “It’s the ultimate bitch fight”.

In the Philippines, Red Turnip promises another hit theatrical experience in COCK. The vision of five established actors (Ana Abad Santos, Topper Fabregas, Jenny Jamora, Cris Villonco and Rem Zamora), Red Turnip aims to engage theatergoers with the sort of material that seems to be in short supply in the country—the straight play. 


A directorial debut of Rem Zamora, which promises to be more intimate this time by using the Hall A of Whitespace. COCK also plays in the round so it feels like you’re watching a fight in an arena—no frills: just words and pure conflict in the ring, and an intense involvement in the audience.

Cock assembled a tight cast like Topper Fabregas/John (Boeing Boeing, The Producers), Niccolo Manahan/M (Next Fall, Doubt), Jenny Jamora/W (Mind’s Eye, A Little Night Music), Audie Gemora/F (Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables).

COCK is a comedy… with bite. No props, scenery or furniture. Just actors, sharp dialogue and some clever staging. All essential. Absolutely Red Turnip.

Cock is supported by Fila, Whitespace, Gung Ho Films Manila, Bose, National Book Store,

Powerbooks, When In Manila, and Radio Republic. BusinessWorld, and HerWord.com. The food-and-drinks concession is provided by Speakeasy. Tickets to the Feb. 28 opening gala sponsored by Fila are available through Red Turnip Theater only.

Directed by Rem Zamora, technical direction and lighting design by John Batalla, set design by Denis Lagdameo and sound design by Jethro Joaquin.
