All female production of Posh heads to the Pleasance Theatre

Laura Wade's hit play returns to London.

Posh

An all female production of Laura Wade's dark comedy Posh has been announced to run at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington from 29 March to 22 April 2017, with an official opening on 3 April.

Directed by Cressida Carré this new production aims to offer a topical voice by allowing women to take centre stage in roles originally written for men. After originally opening at the Royal Court Theatre in 2010, the hit play transferred to the West End in 2012 and was adapted into a film which was renamed 'The Riot Club'. It was nominated for Best New Play at the Evening Standard Awards.

"A fictionalised version of Oxford University's infamous Bullingdon Club, Posh is set in the private dining room of a gastro pub, 10 young bloods with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets are meeting, intent on restoring their right to rule. As members of an elite student dining society, they’re bunkering down for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn’t just a jolly: they’re planning a revolution. Welcome to The Riot Club."

Produced by Tom Harrop for Can’t Think Theatre Company, casting and further creative team for the production are yet to be announced.
