Royal Court Theatre,
Director Lyndsey Turner
Writer Laura Wade
Laura Wade's Posh played on the Royal Court main stage in the run-up to the 2010 election, providing a frisson of controversy by imagining an Oxford University dining club much like the Bullingdon Club of which David Cameron and Boris Johnson were members.
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 Riot Club, the boys are bunkering down for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn’t the last huzzah: they’re planning a takeover.
Josh, still a student at RADA when he was cast, played Guy, the sychopantic enthusiast for all things Riot Club. A priggish little piece of work, Guy is the youngest member of the group on a night that takes a course all of its own.
