CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Queen City Theatre Company will present Mike Bartlett’s “Cock” (The Cockfight Play, aka “—-”) from Nov. 7-23 at Duke Energy Theatre, 345 N. College.

The production is for mature audiences only and contains adult content.
It received the Olivier Award in the UK for Best Original Play.
