Role Guy Bellingfield
Laura Wade's satire focuses on ten privileged undergraduate members of The Riot Club (a thinly veiled version of Oxford University’s infamous Bullingdon Club). They gather in the private function room of a rural gastropub, where a ten-bird roast and individual binbags await them and lead to snobbish braying and aristocratic insurgence. Joshua plays Guy, the son of a liberal newspaper editor who has rejected his father's politics for something more right wing. Lyndsey Turner directs.
Joshua plays Guy Bellingfield, a zealous fledging member of the Riot Club, and was described as "the new Tom Hollander" by critic Michael Coveney during the original run.
... Lyndsey Turner's production retains its buoyancy and precision ... Joshua McGuire as a bouncy aspirant to the club presidency ...**** Michael Billington
... a well deserved West End transfer ... Posh combines twisted humour with ripe excess and cruelly precise topicality.**** Henry Hitchings

... much fun to be had ... strong performances from the whole cast **** Charles Spencer
