Two jobs. Three candidates. This would be a really bad time to have a stain on your shirt...By one of the UK's most exciting young writers, Mike Bartlett (Cock, Earthquakes in London, Chariots of Fire, Love, Love, Love), Bull is a razor sharp play about office politics; or playground bullying - depending which side you're on.
'IN MIKE BARTLETT'S 55-MINUTE THREE-HANDER, THE POWER PLAYS ARE ACTED OUT IN PUBLIC. IN A CRACKING DESIGN FROM SOUTRA GILMOUR, THE OFFICE BECOMES A CORPORATE WRESTLING RING, COMPLETE WITH WATER COOLER, WITH THE AUDIENCE SITTING OR STANDING AROUND THE FOUR SIDES.
YOU CANNOT AVOID BEING DRAWN INTO THE CONTEST AND BECOMING COMPLICIT - EVEN GUILTILY ENJOYING THE SPECTACLE OF THE KILL.★★★★'Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, London
