Acclaimed playwright Laura Wade explores the lives of the young, wealthy and privileged. Are the high-jinks of the tail-coated Bullingdon boys the last gasp of a dying breed? 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. Posh is the first main stage play to have been developed by the Royal Court's Rough Cuts programme, a way of creating new work through integrated collaboration and exploration.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
