Auditions: POSH by Laura Wade


30th August – 3rd September 2022, The Old Court Theatre.


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 the last huzzah: they’re planning a takeover.

Welcome to the Riot Club.
