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 in 2005. The Sloane Square theatre, under the artisitc direction of Dominic Cook, is on a roll at the moment with two of its plays, Enron and Jerusalem, 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. The staging of Posh in the month before a general election is no coincidence either.

 

About Royal Court Theatre

Dedicated to putting on new work and discovering new voices, the Royal Court Theatre was seen as 'the most important theatre in Europe' by no less an authority than The New York Times. In 1956 it staged John Osborne's Look Back in Anger - a landmark in modern British drama - and the Sloane Square theatre has continued to produce work of an equally high standard, with numerous productions making a successful transition to the West End.
