Producers of the world premiere of the all-female version of Posh have announced today that Serena Jennings will replace Hannah Murray in the production due to open at London’s Pleasance Theatre from 29 March 2017. Tickets for Posh are on sale now.
Darkly comic, and disgracefully entertaining, Laura Wade’s universally acclaimed “POSH”, burst to life at the Royal Court theatre in 2010 with a cast that featured future stars Kit Harrington and James Norton, before transferring to the West End. Receiving a fanfare of plaudits, “POSH” became a huge hit with critics and audience alike.
Now the riotous story of Oxford student dining club, a fictionalised version of the infamous Bullingdon Club, will be reinvented for the first time by a company of all-female actors.
Producers issued a statement which said: “It is with sadness that we have to announce Hannah Murray’s departure from ‘POSH’ due to personal reasons, unrelated to the production. However, we are thrilled the role of ‘Alistair’ will now be taken over by the fantastic Serena Jennings.”
The rest of the cast are Lucy Aarden, Cassie Bradley, Alice Brittain, Molly Hanson, Verity Kirk, Macy Nyman, Toni Peach, Jessica Siân, Sarah Thom, Gabby Wong, Amani Zardoe.
Posh runs at the Pleasance from 29 March to 22nd April 2017
