Posh Review 2012

    What the popular press had to say...

    "Undeniably powerful but crude play. It never startles you into a fresh apprehension of the deep-rooted social problem it dramatises. One-sided in its sympathies, Posh presents us with specimens representing a grotesquely engorged sense of entitlement rather than with people who have the right, like all of us, not to be branded in advance because of our parentage."
    Paul Taylor for The Independent

    "Posh combines twisted humour with ripe excess and a cruelly precise topicality. For many it will leave a bitter taste in the mouth. But, as the characters say with lip-smacking approval, it’s savage. "
    Henry Hitchins for The Evening Standard

    "Wade’s writing sparkles darkly with insight and wit, and Turner’s powerful production has some memorable scene changes orchestrated by musical director James Fortune. Posh’s analysis of the latent violence of class antagonism is satirical, grimly hilarious and richly symbolic - it’s a terrific piece of new writing. "
    Aleks Sierz for The Stage

    "How Miss Wade and the producers must have rubbed their hands with glee when the rebel Tory MP Nadine Dorries described the PM and his Chancellor as “arrogant posh boys” out of touch with the lives of ordinary people. For that is exactly the point this blackly comic and often disgracefully entertaining drama strives to make. ...There is no denying the energy of the writing and the wit and power of Lyndsay Turner’s production. "
    Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
