Andrew Scott only came to my attention through Sherlock, and Mike Bartlett through 13, so I did not see this play. What was I thinking?!

Cock, by Mike Bartlett
13 November to 19 December 2009

When John takes a break from his boyfriend, he accidentally meets the girl of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there is only one way to straighten this out …

Mike Bartlett’s punchy new story takes a playful, candid look at one man’s sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realise you have a choice.

NT Live: She Stoops to Conquer, Thursday 29 March

Cut and pasted from an email from the National Theatre:

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith

The National Theatre Live season continues with the smash-hit production She Stoops to Conquer, currently playing to packed houses in the National's Olivier Theatre. One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, the play is a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

Follow the link for more information about the production and to find your nearest venue:

As usual, I will be watching this at my usual NT Live venue, the Brixton Ritzy. I have seen it at the theatre and I liked the production - although not as much as The Comedy of Errors!
