Posh, Laura Wade’s 2010 play about an Oxford student dining club, is to be revived in London, but instead of featuring an all-male cast, it will have an all-female cast. The production, which will be directed by Cressida Carré, will begin performances March 29 at North London’s Pleasance Theatre, prior to an official opening April 3, for a run through April 22.
Hannah Murray, best known for her TV roles as Cassie in Skins and Gilly in Game of Thrones, will lead the cast of this all-female company. In a press statement, she commented, “I am so excited to be a part of this production, it’s a fascinating opportunity to explore and investigate the nature of privilege - a topic I feel there is an increasing urgency to examine and discuss. Working with an all-female ensemble cast is a brilliant opportunity to collaborate with a fantastic company of talented women, which is not something that happens often enough.”
The cast also includes Lucy Aarden, Cassie Bradley, Alice Brittain, Molly Hanson, Verity Kirk, Macy Nyman,Toni Peach, Jessica Siân, Sarah Thom, Gabby Wong, and Amani Zardoe.
The production will have sets and costumes by Sara Perks, with costumes co-designed by Sarah Mills, lighting by Derek Anderson, and sound by Harry Barker. It is produced by Tom Harrop for Can’t Think Theatre Company.
