Follow the Posh Boys and other Posh News

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.

Arms and the Man on BBC Radio 3

A big thanks to flip for spotting Tom's role in this radio play that will air on BBC Radio 3 on March 21st from 8-10 pm.  According to the BBC Press Office:

It is 1885, and there is trouble in the Balkans with the Serbians and the Bulgarians at war with each other. Raina Petkoff (Lydia Leonard) is convinced that her fiancé, Major Sergius Saranoff (Tom Mison), will glorify himself in the war and become her hero. However, after a dramatic encounter with a down-to-earth Serbian officer who hides in her room, she is brought face to face with the mundane truth about the conflict.

The ideals and realities of war, hypocrisy and nationalism are all entertainingly explored in this romantic comedy by one of Ireland's most acerbic writers, George Bernard Shaw.
