Club reforms for West End Posh

First Published 30 March 2012, Last Updated 1 August 2018

Original Posh cast members Leo Bill, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Tom Mison and Simon Shepherd will recreate their roles when the Royal Court hit transfers to the West End later this spring.

They are joined at the Duke of York’s theatre from 11 May by fellow Posh alumni Jolyon Coy, Richard Goulding, Charlotte Lucas, Joshua McGuire, and newcomers Steffan Rhodri, Max Bennett, Pip Carter, Edward Killingback, Harry Lister Smith and Jessica Ransom.

Laura Wade’s tale of an elite Oxford University dining society first ran at the Royal Court in 2010, when it played to 100% capacity, proving one of the highest-grossing shows in Royal Court history.

Set in an oak-panelled room at the famous university, 10 young men with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets meet for a night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn’t a jolly; they’re planning a revolution.

Among the original cast members, Lloyd-Hughes and Bill are fast becoming London stage regulars, the former appearing most recently in the Young Vic ’s The Changeling, while the latter starred in School For Scandal at the Barbican.

New boy Bennett appeared opposite Felicity Jones in the Donmar Warehouse production of Luise Miller, and Carter is proving a regular at the National Theatre with credits including The Cherry Orchard, The White Guard and Gethsemane.

Of the more experienced cast members, Rhodri joins the cast having scored huge successes with the Olivier Award-winning Clybourne Park and, more recently, Absent Friends, and Shepherd’s credits include London productions of Art, Secret Rapture and The Browning Version.

Posh’s season at the Duke of York’s theatre is the first of a double transfer from the Royal Court. It will be followed, from late August, by April De Angelis’s Olivier Award-nominated Jumpy, starring Tamsin Greig.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
