RHCR and Dreamwell Bring Cock to CR

Cedar Rapids – Dreamwell Theatre’s acclaimed production (read the review here) of Mike Barlett’s Cock will be presented at the Artisan’s Sanctuary in Cedar Rapids June 10 and 11. After a successful run at Public Space One in Iowa City, RHCR reached out to Dreamwell with the idea of continuing the run in Cedar Rapids.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the run of the show,” said Dreamwell President Matthew Falduto. “Cock is one of the best shows we’ve ever done. We really appreciate the chance to partner with RHCR.”

The play follows John (Per Wiger), who has been in a stable relationship with his boyfriend (Bryant Duffy) for a number of years. But when he takes a break, he accidentally falls in love with a woman (Jessica Wilson). Torn between the two, filled with guilt and conflicting emotions, he doesn’t know which way to turn. His boyfriend is willing to wait for him to make a decision, but so is his girlfriend. And both are prepared to fight to keep him. As the pressure mounts, a dinner with both parties is arranged, and everyone wants to know. Who is John? What is he? And what will his decision be? A comic discussion of identity and sexuality, the play is specified to be performed with no props or set, so the focus is all on the drama of the situation.

Performances will take place at 7:00pm (note that’s an earlier time than regular Dreamwell shows) at The Artisan’s Sanctuary, 45- 16th Ave. SW, Cedar Rapids. Tickets for the Cedar Rapids show can be purchased here.
