  • Winner: Best New Play - UK Theatre Awards 2013
  • Winner: Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre

A razor-sharp play about the fine line between office politics and playground bullying, Bull offers ringside seats as three employees fight to keep their jobs.

Mike Bartlett's acid-tongued play Bull opened at the Young Vic, London, in 2015, directed by Clare Lizzimore. It was originally performed at the Crucible Studio Theatre, Sheffield, in 2013, where it won the UK Theatre Awards for Best New Play. It also won an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre in 2015.

Press Quotes

'Sinewy, stinging, witty... it's as if Bartlett has taken the nastiest needling from a Mamet or a Pinter play and put them into a space of pure verbal aggression'

The Times

'Short, slick and emotionally unflinching... delivers a decisive punch'

The Stage

'A gem of a new play... chillingly evokes the dynamics of bullying, in school, the work place, and elsewhere'

WhatsOnStage

'A writer with a startling breadth of ambition coupled with an ear for dialogue unmatched by many of his contemporaries... Bull taps into something incredibly relevant and potent'
