A Posh Single?

A Posh Single?

Apparently, Tom and his Posh co-stars Harry Hadden-Paton and Henry Lloyd-Hughes were in the studio today recording...something!  Harry (@haddockpate) was kind enough to post a link to a photo.  He called what they were recording a "single" -  it'll be interesting to see what it is used for.  He also tweeted that there would be rehearsal photos taken today and perhaps some interviews, so it sounds like the Posh PR machine is certainly gearing up for the opening of previews - 2 weeks from today!

We've got several bits of Posh news to share! 

In addition to being able to follow Tom on Twitter (@TomMison), you can now also follow two other cast members.  Harry Hadden-Paton, who plays Harry Villiers, can be found on Twitter as @haddockpate.  Henry Lloyd-Hughes, who plays Dimitri Mitropoulos in Posh, is @MatineeIdle

@Haddockpate was lovely enough to post 3 photos from rehearsals with Tom in them.  The first one is the Posh boys at fencing practice - impressive looking group!  This one is a bit out of focus, but gorgeous nonetheless.  And this one is Tom making like a rock star, practicing his room trashing!

An article about Posh, and its writer Laura Wade, was posted on Times Online recently.  It doesn't mention Tom, but offers a lot of background information about the play and some of the politics behind it.

Tom cast in Highly anticipated Royal Court play "Posh"

The news has just been released that Tom has been cast as James Leighton-Masters in the first full production of Laura Wade's play "Posh."  Previews begin April 9th, and the play will run through May 22nd.

A synopsis of the play:

"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."

Congratulations to Tom - we know he'll be brilliant!!
