About the production:
PORT OUT STARBOARD HOME (POSH) is a rollicking black comedy, set on a luxury cruise ship where an eclectic group of seekers form an intimate temporary community. Untethered from the baggage of past or future, they become entangled in a strange and disturbing ritual. POSH offers a surreal view of a pampered society accustomed to purchasing piña coladas and spiritual bliss with the same swipe of the credit card.
