The Royal Court’s West End season begins with Posh Theatre Breaks. The new play by Laura Wade’ is a searing take on Britain’s class system, old money and the ultra privileged. In an oak-panelled room in Oxford, ten young bloods with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets are meeting, intent on restoring their right to rule. Members of an elite student dining society, the boys are 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! Welcome to the Posh Theatre Break! Posh is written by Laura Wade, a graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers Programme whose play Breathing Corpses, won the Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright. Her latest stage hit Posh is currently being adapted into a feature film for Blueprint Pictures. Director Lyndsey Turner’s work at the Royal Court includes Contractions, A Miracle and Our Private Life.
