Games of Thrones actress Hannah Murray has withdrawn from the all-female production of Posh.

Murray, known to audiences for Polly Stenham’s That Face and also for roles in Skins and Game of Thrones, had been due to lead the cast, playing the role of Alistair.  She will be replaced by Serena Jennings.

The show’s producers confirmed that Murray had left the project “for personal reasons unrelated to the production”.

Directed by Cressida Carre, this is the first all-female production of Laura Wade’s play which begins its run at the Pleasance Theatre on 29 March 2017

Posh premiered at the Royal Court to much acclaim starring among others James Norton, Kit Harington and Harry Hadden-Paton.
