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 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.
