THE RIOT CLUB RETURNS WITH AN ALL FEMALE CAST.
OLD MONEY. NEW PROBLEMS. DIFFERENT GENDER.
The Riot Club returns in the world premiere of the all-female production of Posh.
Darkly comic, and disgracefully entertaining, Laura Wade’s universally acclaimed play Posh, premiered at the Royal Court in 2010 before transferring to the West End. Receiving a fanfare of plaudits, Posh became a huge hit with critics and audience alike.
Now the riotous story of the Oxford student dining club, a fictionalised version of the infamous Bullingdon Club, will be reinvented for the first time by a company of all-female actors.
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.
This thrilling new production gives Laura Wade’s play a new, topical voice by allowing women to take centre stage in roles originally written for men.
The all-female production of Posh will be directed by Off West End award winner Cressida Carré.
