    1. Terrifying and hilarious. It is about the exploits of entitled rich boys who think they have to claw back control of the world from the hands of the proles. The Riot Club is a dress rehearsal for what the boys will do in government, in business. They talk of how they worked so hard to shape civilization, how their blood was spilt. These speeches read like a parody of Marxist interpretation of history, just with proletariat replaced with "us" - us being the upper classes. "Got any change?" "No on [...]



    2. I don't like reading plays but I made an exception for this because it sounded so interesting. Its a fictionalised version of the Bullingdon Club which is an exclusive dining club for Oxford students. What I found strange was how much I ended up pitying the characters. its not because they deserved my sympathy but because they didn't have the slightest understanding about the real world. In a lot of ways the characters were so uneducated in decency and morality its quite frightening. they almost [...]


    3. Acabo de ver la película basada en esta obra, The Riot Club. La historia es tan humana (en el mal sentido) que por momentos resulta casi dolorosa de ver (en el buen sentido). Es cruel y la amé. Y todos sabemos que los libros (o, en este caso, la obra) siempre son mejores que las películas, así que lo deseo demasiado.


    4. I'm auditioning for this play in a few days, so I thought it'd be a good idea to read the whole script! I really enjoyed it -- it's such an unexpected and shocking play, and an accurate critique on the privileged. I hope I'm able to see it live one day, or if it all goes well, even act in it!


    5. The impetus for my reading this is the impending film version, which sounds interesting. Not quite sure how it will translate, but the play itself is both very entertaining and astute about how an elitist attitude colors everything the upper classes touch.


    6. 3.5 more. I first heard of Laura wade through 'breathing corpses'; my favourite play and now after reading 'Posh' she is becoming one of my favourite playwrights. I don't have much to say apart from I wish I could've seen it staged.


    7. One of my favourite plays. Although it is rather tongue-in-cheek at times, those are the parts that I like about this play. I do believe that Wade did push the boundaries a little with the pure disrespect these boys have for the pub owner and premises, including women too, but the outrageous antics only add to the fuel of the fire. ‘How do you make an Eaton mess?’‘Tell him he only got into Bristol’



    8. Ten young entitled oxonians gather for a night of drinking, carousing, and riotous behavior as members of the Riot Club. The night turns political and violent at the end.Wade's play was highly topical when it first debuted in 2010 as the British elections were forthcoming. With the second production in 2012, the summer after the widespread riots in England, the content still rang true on some respects. At one point, one of the boys recites a poem that parodies Henry V's speech at Harfleur: "Once [...]


    9. This is the story of a group of privileged students who are part of an elite dining club. While they dine out they cause havoc for those around them but don't really see the true depth of their damage as they are willing to pay for it. I enjoyed reading this play and could clearly imagine how it could be staged and the characters were clearly drawn. Perhaps predictably from the synopsis, many of the characters were unlikable but well satirised. The end of the play is dark and political and it is [...]


    10. A play about an exclusive male student society which shows that it's all about getting drunk and being stupid. About young guys who think they can behave as badly as they want and pay afterwards. Luckily money can't buy everything. But sadly these clubs offer access to secret networks of influence in politics and business.


    11. flips the economic crisis on its head, and looks at privilege from the inside -- fresh gripes, fears, pressures and the seemingly unavoidable 'way of the world', divided into have-lots and have-nots. terrifying, insulting, cruel, jaw-dropping narcissistic chauvinism, but pretty damn compelling.


    12. Absolutely fantastic. It's funny, humorous and a quick read. It took me a little over two hours to read and it was worth it. It starts off hysterical and you love this rich boys, but then you see a more serious side to them,


    13. The best play she has written so far and a great counterpoint to consider as it came out just before the Occupy protests emerged. You've heard the anger of the 99%. Wade allows the 1% to express their anger with the 99%. Funny, fascinating and well crafted.



    14. Absolutely love Laura Wade's Posh. Brilliantly written. Amazing rising conflict. terrifying look into how money can actually effect the entitled. Could not put it down!


    15. Surprisingly I'm not a big fan of this new generation of "History Boys". However I was intrigued and found out Laura's other work were more powerful.
