Posh by Laura Wade
Directed by Lyndsey Turner
In an oak-panelled room in Oxford, ten young bloods with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets are meeting, intent on restoring their right to rule. Members of an elite student dining society, the boys are bunkering down for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn't just a jolly: they're planning a revolution. Welcome to the Riot Club.
'The Court has been mapping contemporary society, and providing some of the most notable new plays of the last decade. Jerusalem roamed around in search of Britain's heart. Enron skewered the financial crisis. Now Posh has taken on the party political landscape.' - The Observer
'A good, old-fashioned piece of class war.' - Daily Telegraph
'Lively, funny and wickedly timely.' - The Times
Written by Laura Wade, a graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers Programme whose play Breathing Corpses, won the Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright, the Pearson Playwrights Best Play Award, the George Devine Award and an Olivier Award Nomination for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre. Posh is currently being adapted into a feature film for Blueprint Pictures.
Director Lyndsey Turner's work at the Royal Court includes Contractions, A Miracle and Our Private Life. Other theatre successes include Edgar and Annabel, There Is A War (National Theatre), Joseph K and Nocturnal (Gate); My Romantic History (Traverse, Bush, Sheffield Theatres) and The Lesson (Arcola).
