PoshIt was Groucho Marx who wisely said "I would not join any club that would have someone like me for a member." Something members of the Riot Club - a thinly veiled fictional version of Oxford University's legendary dining club, the Bullingdon - would do well to bear in mind. In Posh, Laura Wade's drama about members of the Riot Club, the elite are at play, drinking fine wines on a jolly good night out, but there's a plot hatching - they're planning a takeover. Posh is a follow-up to Laura Wade's award-winning 'Breathing Corpses' which was shown at the Royal Court Theatre in 2005. The Sloane Square theatre, under the artisitc direction of Dominic Cook, is on a roll at the moment with three of its plays, Enron, Jerusalem, and now Posh transferring to the West End. But while Jerusalem deals with the gritty working classes, Posh is at the other end of the spectrum - now it's the turn of the privileged classes to be placed under the spotlight.

 

About Duke of York's Theatre

This West End theatre has more than its share of name changes. Originally called The Trafalgar in 1894, it became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V. During the late 1990s, the name was temporarily changed to The Royal Court Theatre. More about Duke of York's Theatre
