Hannah Murray has dropped out of the upcoming all-female production of Posh, due to personal reasons.

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.

However, the show’s producers confirmed that she had left the project “for personal reasons unrelated to the production”.

Murray will be replaced by Serena Jennings.

The first all-female production of Laura Wade’s play begins its run at the Pleasance Theatre in north London on March 29, with press night on April 3.

Posh is directed by Cressida Carre, with design by Sara Perks. It is produced by Tom Harrop for Can’t Think Theatre Company.

Last month, the show’s producers came under fire after advertising for a company stage manager, a role that would be paid £250 per week plus profit share.

In a blog for The Stage, stage manager Jess Gow described the pay as “appalling and sub-standard”.
