ROYAL COURT THEATRE PRODUCTIONS AND AMBASSADOR THEATRE GROUP PRESENT A ROYAL COURT WEST END SEASON AT DUKE OF YORK’S THEATRE
                                   
Royal Court Theatre Productions and Ambassador Theatre Group bring a season of the Royal Court Theatre’s work to the heart of the West End.

The Royal Court’s West End season begins with Posh, Laura Wade’s searing take on Britain’s classes, old money and the ultra privileged. Lyndsey Turner directs.

The cast is Max Bennett (In Basildon, Royal Court; Danton’s Death, National); Leo Bill (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; Posh, Royal Court); Pip Carter (The Cherry Orchard and Gethsemane, National); Jolyon Coy (Posh and Before The Flood, Royal Court); Richard Goulding (The Soldier and the Maker, Barbican; Posh, Royal Court); Edward Killingback (Posh marks Edward’s professional stage debut); Harry Lister Smith (Hamlet, Sheffield Crucible); Henry Lloyd-Hughes (The Inbetweeners, series and film; Posh, Royal Court); Charlotte Lucas (The Changeling, Young Vic; Posh, Royal Court); Joshua McGuire (Hamlet, Globe / International tour; Posh, Royal Court); Tom Mison (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen; Posh, Royal Court); Jessica Ransom (Doc Martin; The Wonder! A Woman Keep’s a Secret, BAC); Steffan Rhodri (Gavin and Stacey; Clybourne Park, Royal Court; Absent Friends, West End); and Simon Shepherd (Art, West End; Posh, Royal Court).

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.

Posh played to 100% capacity at the Royal Court and remains one of the highest-grossing shows ever to play in the theatre.

The Royal Court is a leading force in world theatre, finding and producing new plays that are original, contemporary and challenging. This summer the Royal Court will be simultaneously producing work at its home in Sloane Square, in the West End, New York with an off Broadway production of Cock by Mike Bartlett as well as the next Theatre Local season.
