Steep Theatre Extends POSH Through 3/12

Steep Theatre's critically acclaimed production of Laura Wade's Posh has been playing to enthusiastic sold-out houses since its opening in January. In response to enormous ticket demand, Posh has been extended through March 12th, adding 8 new opportunities to see what Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune called "a bevy of talent" perform in "a dynamic, often shocking little storefront show guaranteed to make you fume anew at the ongoing inequality of the most mature democracies."

Posh will run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm with Sunday matinees at 3pm through March 12th at Steep Theatre on Berwyn Ave.

The Oxbridge dining club is filled with Britain's brightest, best and most moneyed young men. When their elitist position is threatened, they will stop at nothing to take it back. Posh puts you on the front lines of the war between the classes, the adolescent struggle for identity, and the battle for the status quo.
