About the Show Less...

A new play inspired by the legendary Bullingdon club. Read More >

Posh is set in an oak-panelled room in Oxford, where 10 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 the last huzzah; they are planning a takeover.

Welcome to the Riot Club.

Posh playwright Laura Wade is a product of the Royal Court young writers programme. Her first play for the Royal Court, Breathing Corpses, won her multiple awards and a Laurence Olivier Award nomination. Posh is the first main stage play to have been developed by the Court’s Rough Cuts programme, a way of creating new work through integrated collaboration and exploration.

Posh is suitable for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
