The Clifton Players present Martin Casella’s wickedly delightful and heart-wrenching play, The Irish Curse, February 28 through March 15. What “The Irish Curse” is – and how it manifests itself – is the raw centerpiece of this rollicking new play. From its blistering language to its brutally honest look at sex and body image, The Irish Curse is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity. Size matters to this small group of Irish-American men who meet every Wednesday night, in a Catholic church basement, at a self-help group for men with small penises. This allegedly Irish trait is the focus of their weekly whining as they feel this “shortcoming” has ruined their lives. When a 20-something blue-collar guy joins the group, he challenges everything these men thought about “the Irish curse,” tackling their obsession with body image and unmasking the comical and truthful questions of identity, masculinity, sex, relationships, and social status that define their lives.
Starring Michael Bath, Carter Bratton, Kevin Crowley, Buz Davis and Pete Wood. Directed by Cathy Springfield.
