A new production of Olivier Award winning writer Laura Wade’s critically acclaimed dark comedy Posh, will tour the UK this autumn starring Tyger Drew-Honey from TV’s Outnumbered.
Heading out on a five-week UK tour, Posh turns the spotlight on the privileged elite, charting a night of debauchery, indulgence and violence.
As members of The Riot Club, a private gentleman’s dining society, the play explores the class divide.
First staged at the Royal Court Theatre in London during the 2010 general election, the play’s punchy dark humour and provocative political themes struck a chord with audiences and proved both a critical and sell-out success.
Playwright Laura Wade said: “Power, privilege and entitlement are as much in the news now as they were when Posh was first performed, so it feels like a good time to bring the boys back to the table…”
Oxford’s prestigious and red-blooded Riot Club are back, but this time on one condition. They must behave. Keep it out of the Daily Mail. Preserve the reputation of the club.
After the mishaps of this exclusive Oxford group at their last dinner, their President has promised its ex-members not to bring the club back into public disrepute.
At a tough political time, the reputation of the PM cannot be tarnished. As the booze flows and the mood turns sour, will the brotherhood prevail or will the lawyers of those with the deepest pockets preserve these bright young men’s futures?
