The critically acclaimed comedy Posh is returning to theatres across the UK, with actor Tyger Drew-Honey making his stage debut in the role of Alistair Ryle.

Known for his role as Jake in the award-winning BBC show, Outnumbered, Tyger has also hosted several BBC documentaries, and starred in a range of TV programmes, including Scream Street, Citizen Khan, Death in Paradise and Midsomer Murders. He has also recently finished filming as Jon Craven on feature film, Me, Myself, and Di. Further casting of the show is to be announced.

Posh charts a night of debauchery, indulgence and violence amongst members of ‘The Riot Club’, a private gentleman’s dining society.

Returning to the stage once more, the Riot Club is back, but on one condition. They must behave. After the mishaps at their last dinner, their President has promised its ex-members not to bring the club back into public disrepute. But 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?

Written by Olivier Award winner Laura Wade (who recently won the Best New Comedy Olivier for Home I’m Darling), the show has punchy dark humour and provocative political themes.

More recently, this popular play has been adapted into a film starring Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Natalie Dormer and Tom Hollander.

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.”

Posh will commence a UK tour from 3 September until 26 October 2019. The tour dates are:

  • Oxford Playhouse (3 – 7 September)
  • Cambridge Arts Theatre (17 – 21 September)
  • Bath Theatre Royal (23 – 28 September)
  • Rose Theatre Kingston (15 – 19 October)
  • Theatr Clwyd  (23 – 26 October)

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

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.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
